Hush. . . Stay. . .Go (Poem for Valentine's Day)

Hush . . . Stay . . . Go

The lone rose of your breath
on my cheek rests lightly,

like some mid-winter silence
in the small hours before

your sweet complaint has
turned to fire. The taste

of you — a hush from far
away — is magic, a song lifting

a heavy web of dews from
mouths of milk-white blossoms.

You learn my real dwelling
has no pillars, and flower.
