Belated Apology


She became a skull-face, but I became Death,
Brackishly leaning, with foul-tempered breath.

She became an andiron, and I became a poker,
And then she was a Tarot card, but I was a Joker.

She became a hippo, so I became a mouse-
Which frightened the hippo, right into a house

Where I became fire, and she an escape;
Then she became female, and I became rape.

And she became old, so I became young,
And her withered flesh was loosely hung.

Then she began screaming, so I became vacuum,
Twirling the voids, which soon would entomb.

And at her wits end, she thought- last- apologize-
So then we ceased all, and we said our goodbyes.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
