Questions for No One


What is that burden which afflicts your breath?
The quickening of renewal
or the stagnation of death?

And if in silence, perchance we meet:
is it a triumph for our love
or our life's defeat?

Do most couples know their trysts
are but fleeting moments,
sharp with bliss?

Or do they suppose their amorous glee
will span the bridges
of eternity?

“Together” is but happenstance.
Happy coincidence
left up to by chance:

but a small chapter in a Passion Play
in which all must perish
to love away.
