Encounter II


I said:

'Tell me in
one word
what I should
know
about you? '

She said:
'I love you! '

I said:

that is three worlds,
not even three words;
I have been and still in there;
quiet
Lost

you are a world,
love is a world,
and I am another world.

sooner or later,
love's dust
will take over
my world and your world,
and I will loose
my word,
all my words,
and my own dictionary.
