Human History: Respectfully

People who don’t understand each other
can only say enough to make things worse.
Or, I might say,
the woman whose hair was made from fallen leaves
could not love the man
with bees for fingertips.
A barn door closes.
Some leaves jump out. Some bees fly in.
“Don’t all men have bees for fingertips?” she would ask.
“Shouldn’t you be more like a flower?” He would respond.

About Me

A poet-chef living in Denver, Co. I use the orange Aquafresh toothpaste, off brand mouthwash, and those little floss picks.
