Say it, Sonia . [2 poems]


"Ballad"

(after the spanish)

forgive me if i laugh
you are so sure of love
you are so young
and i too old to learn of love.

the rain exploding
in the air is love
the grass excreting her
green wax is love
and stones remembering
past steps is love,
but you. you are too young
for love
and i too old.

once. what does it matter
when or who, i knew
of love.
i fixed my body
under his and went
to sleep in love
all trace of me
was wiped away


forgive me if i smile
young heiress of a naked dream
you are so young
and i too old to learn of love.


"Poem #3"

I gather up

each sound

you left behind

and stretch them

on our bed.

each nite

I breathe you

and become high.


these poems are by a lady named Sonia Sanchez . google her . your life might change .
