and if I stopped writing about you

10 Jan

————

and if I stopped writing about you

 

and if I stopped writing about you

would you denounce me

turn celibate

smoldering long in a dress the color of coal

and aberrations

and if I stopped writing about you

would you forgive me

turn callous about the work

watching me hunt for words as cruel as ivory

and the eyes of the rest of the elephants in mourning

and if I stopped writing about you

would you still stay

keep on existing

turning around as sensuously as bread and bankruptcy

and the birds you conjure up to caper like sweet aurora

that keep me awake

still writing

searching for new topics

that will erase themselves politely

as easy as gasoline

and a short vacation in Bhutan

where you wore your moccasins to walk

as gently as fleeting orison
