Love in 5-7-5 Time

whatever you love
cuts you like a knife, carving
canyons in your flesh
someone who loves you
washes away everything
you thought essential
ceaseless floods of love
grind your soul’s granite to silt
washing it downstream
layer by layer
what’s inside you is revealed
by your lover’s art

a lonely sentinel tree
guarding the canyon

glowing at twilight
an ancient concrete canyon—
someone drops a spoon
