Another Canvas / new poems 2011

Joli Comme Un Coeur (As Pretty As A Heart)

soft vowels spill
from the pout of
your lips

my tongue
to the crack and tick
of consonants
counting time
in between time
until I see you again

le temps entre
punctuated by
periods of pining

spent chiseling words
into the granite of hours
without you

that read,
Joli Comme Un Coeur,
within their own stippled heart,
cleaving to one another
in the same way your lips'
whispered caress, "Je t'aime,"
has clung to my own
