tagNon-Erotic Poetrywholly to be a fool

wholly to be a fool


since feeling is first
who pays any attention
to the syntax of things
will never wholly kiss you

~E.E. Cummings

since feeling is first
there is no speak
before touch when you come
to find me - I you

who (else) pays any attention
the epicenter of my tremble? Have you
found my secret spot? Or have I started to
fall into that soft doubting place

before tears, yes, you pay attention
to the syntax of things
of all things feeling, first
when you whisper “I know, I know

I know”
the others
will never wholly kiss you
our breath tangles like
toes. Yes I, you, love.
