Are You Aware You Speak in Iambs?


            with thanks to K.M.


 


You taught me the two-step


on a downtown sidewalk in August


to the rhythms of Frost and Dickinson,


clasping my hands and tracing


my hesitant footsteps. You said


poems were full of symbols.


 


You ask me what the star in my poem means.


 


Sometimes, a star is nothing more


than a star. Sometimes


symbolism is overrated.


 


You made me recite


Ogden Nash with my bedtime prayers


while kneeling, both of us with bowed heads


and folded hands.


 


But stars darken and leave


hesitant holes in the sky


when August dawns ascend


and blur their light into sunrise.
