it is in the nature I have nurtured to love like April rain
fat and heavy and all at once
and I am proud to fall thus in spite of my fear
at your dusty feet murmuring the praises I have for you

I could put it away if it frightens you
but it’s not gone, just looking the other way
the dark side of my mooning, unkissed by the days we meet

I think I could hold it indefinite as long as you
knowing I will churn and chuckle waves behind my teeth
bubble and foam my fondness for ever
in all of our every lives.
