A Love Letter


I write words and listen to sounds

from Persia. Thereís a party next door

and when the exotic music stops

so do my words.


They slip off pages,

shatter and split into a loose alphabet.


Each letter on the ground forms collages

varied as the cleavages of the women

over the fence.


Today is a special Babylonian day.

One of tying blades of grass together.

With each tie one makes a wish.


I tie one knot. You and I intertwined.
