Windows to the Soul: Selected Poems (3)

The Settlement

Once you’ve taken

a piece of

somebody’s heart

you can’t really give it back

so keep it

somewhere safe –

no, really

I want you to have it

An Ache in my Soul

Just the way you stand

(across the room)

is so compelling

Your smile looks

like golden hour

Naiveté

When you are young enough

To believe

That everything has been

Invented

just in time

for you
