from a seventies english professor love film

anything seems possible in september

it was accidentally my birthday

we found ourselves
walking toward each other
so easily

embracing perfectly
your abraham lincoln height

understanding the ticks and quirks
the hidden truths within

sharing books
about our native southern land
yet it was you who was the gift

dichotomy of diagnosis

and you were beautiful
in your chuck taylors
eraserhead t shirt
and blue jeans
looking every bit a respectable novelist

we could have been
a seventies english professor love film

i wanted you
everything the sunlight does to your eyes

my reckless heart cared not to destroy your clockwork world

please know
it was agony in my heels

but only as i was walking away

for k.
