50/50 Odds On Love

love-in-the-afternoon. Andrew Wyeth

love-in-the-afternoon. Andrew Wyeth

 

maybe you can make it

if you forget about the odds

 

slip them under the pillow

while you’re learning to love

 

be honest

be gentle with your secrets

 

take long walks through your bodies & taste everything

wash each other

 

play the lead in your production

and let your partner steal the show

 

grow raindrops together

& watch them flower

 

commit your possessions to the hours

for you may have a lifetime

to parade

to flaunt

 

to wrap quietly around your minds

and warm you
