The dust – of sunlight
The mouth of a young girl, like a violet
But gold – smells of nothing.”

“The thing to remember about love affairs,” says Simone, “is that they are all like having raccoons in your chimney.”

We have raccoons sometimes in our chimney,” explains Simone.
And once we tried to smoke them out. We lit a fire, knowing they were there, but we hoped the smoke would cause them to scurry out the top and never come back. Instead, they caught on fire and came crashing down into our living room, all charred and in flames and running madly around until they dropped dead.” Simone swallows some wine. “Love affairs are like that,” she says. “They are all like that.”

I started looking for you, not knowing
how blind that was.

They’re in each other all along.”

and rightdoing there is a field.
I’ll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass
the world is too full to talk about.”
