In Song for Love Gone Deeper (Poem)

In Song for Love Gone Deeper

You carry
blues off a beat, out
of synch, still
apron-string-
tied, labored
in song for love gone deeper
in your wintered eyes.

I love the way this sounds like a song, as well as suggesting a bluesy song-like person.

This has just the right slant of tenderness to it to make me cry a little--longing for the apron strings to be tied to, I guess.

I do so love your poetry!
