Selected Works

WOMAN AND MAN

We met, woman and man,
at a crossroad
in two lives,

not set as a plus sign …
you from the far left,
I from the right-angle …

but multiplication rather,
paper kiss,
times table sign
of learning …

love, hardship,
knowledge, sorrow.

We met, woman and man,
and loved, and that really
is all the mathematics
of it …we loved …

I forget the rest.
