a love poem that had previously appeared in the journal Judaism in 1988 and is on page 19 in my collection "A History of Interruptions" available from Amazon, B&N and other online and independent booksellers worldwide.

The flower of womanhood.

You are like no flower,
you are a snake.

A cobra
with your head erect,

Ready to strike.
And stricken was I.

The apple of my eye.

Out of reach,
Bittersweet

Like the honey-apple
I've never tasted.

But when in reach
You are still no joy,

For your taste is forbidden,
And cast from the Garden

Was I.

They said that about women: “can't live with them and can't live without them.” Bittersweet.
