poem: communication

13 Dec

Communication

if you hear words,
    “i love you” and
    “forever”
their meaning
more honest
than
a christ on a cross

my distance keeps fading
tremors in a heartbeat
most of us offer only dramatic poses
under
a sky filled with
cumulus clouds

outside
pagans dance
on concrete moon chases
a pigeon passes
without comment
as i wait for a stranger
to light my cigarette
