Loft - Poem by jeff thornton


Your heart, so leaden;
weighs at mine-

I can displace gravity from
this one,
that the other might waft
in parallel course?

Yet- if yours ever it finds itself
lofted above my own
perhaps it will slow,
and remember.

    I like the revision so much better than this early work. Hard to find your stuff in bookstores, 'jeff'! (Report) Reply
