Mandolyn ...

good-morning babe, don't say good-night

please don't go
to the other side of the world
and brand a new girl
with your selfless signature
a squiggle in the end
to make her giggle and jump in
when you say

'the water's warm, you should swim'

i'll pin you to the moon
and when it's noon, i'll write you
and say that i forgot you
somewhere high

it will be a lie
we can keep denying
until the sky bursts open
and slurps us both

makes us sit together,
reads us our rights
hands folded, knees touching
in the afterlife

(For the Rev. James J. Daly, S. J.)
