what benefit
is destiny
when all we do is pine
for another life –
another breath
some other choice

a moment come
when words are met –
by a heart that fits
us so
is worth the price
for wanting –
what only lovers

there is no time
beyond today –
no break
beyond the trees
where life is lived
apart from here –
as truth resolved
to be

. . .
