Softly Drifting.

Katsuhide Morimoto

Sometimes I would see her with her lovers
walking through the Village, the wind
strapped about her ankles.
Simply being, she fought
against the enemies of love and poetry
like Achilles in wrath.
Her tongue was not a lake,
but it lifted her lovers
with the gentle strength of a lake
that lifts a cove of waterlilies—
her blue eyes, the sky above them—
till night fell and the mysteries began.
My friend I love, poet I love,
if you are not reading or writing tonight
on your Underwood typewriter,
if no one is kissing you, death is real.
-Anonymous Poet, Stanley Moss

  16. I love this post!

    When I was in high school I went on a trip to Europe, and one of the girls I was with went to the Doc Martens factory store in London. She bought a pair of Docs that were covered in glitter, and when she wore them the glitter would fall off and leave behind a delicate trail. I was so jealous. They were so lovely.
