Perhaps, seeing beyond that night,
we loved long and sure.
Still, not even you could keep us
from that particular end,
each elsewhere.

You could calmly wait for love
and had the will.
I was not that true nor sane.

And now in my lucid, indigo dreams
I cry,
disclosure not heard by you.

For I desire mashed potatoes
and conversation,
I'm over silky beds and empty tables

Longing for that long discarded love
conveniently mislaid,
only your slender volume of poetry remains.

Not the poem which we have read, but that to which we return, with the greatest pleasure, possesses the power and claims the name of essential poetry.

Huni, what remains
is more than beautiful. This poem is heart touching, real. It's moved me, deeply!

This poem, like its subject are worthy of being loved... so sad.
