Never put down "puppy love".


The Flying Moment

One season, back in ’65,
when cups and saucers came alive,

when time stood down — and up — to death,
when dark dimensions, length and breadth,

soared off with senses, bees and birds
in a futility of words,

a purple, orange, silver kiss
anointed ignorance with bliss.

But now the world’s a shadow box
of butterflies. And there are clocks:

the sun comes up, the moon goes down.
Love’s just another common noun.

Yet — somewhere — constellations swirl
above a fifteen-year-old girl.
