to remember your face at night

Updated: Nov 8



Reaching across the clammy world

to remember your face at night

the cities we've stepped on

frenzied with drink

and the sounds of love

drumming through our hips

the newspaper article

about the president of France

a 30 year affair cracked

like a cannon through Paris

to claim her own they said

but the truth was

she could not forget him

the greatness of him

the prodigious happenings

of their quiet voices, sleep far

when time is lucid

neither will I

forget

five years four words

reaching across the clammy world

to remember your face at night
