since feeling is first
who pays any attention
to the syntax of things
will never wholly kiss you;

wholly to be a fool
while Spring is in the world

my blood approves,
and kisses are a far better fate
than wisdom
lady i swear by all flowers. Don’t cry
–the best gesture of my brain is less than
your eyelids’ flutter which says

we are for each other: then
laugh, leaning back in my arms
for life’s not a paragraph

And death i think is no parenthesis

[PS – Bittergrace has great taste in poetry, but I have to call Doctor Who into question. Straying far from Star Trek and Battlestar Galactica will get you somewhere you have never been, but in a bad way.]
