Poetry Is…

“Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash.”

– Leonard, of course.

My dinner date is arriving.

I’ve timed this poorly.

I am as excited as I am tired.

The root vegetables are ready.

The greens are on their way.

The whole Vipassana-dip thing can be sorted out upon arrival.

You remember?

The smashing tahnini, yogurt, sage and pepper number?

Oh yeah, you remember…

My apartment is tidy enough for company.

Tidy enough to only be messed up again.

I haven’t seen him in moons.

Miss his guts, I do.

Miss them daily.

I hope he brings wine.
