Why You


Why you?
Why particularly you?
From all women
You changed my days’ rhythm
My life engineering,
My physics,
And my chemistry,
And I did not oppose or resist.
Why I love you particularly,
Desire you particularly,
And let you
Slide between the blue papers
Of my journal
To sleep with my poems.
Why you particularly
I let you sing on my cheeks
And dance on my eyebrow
And I did not oppose.

Why you particularly,
I let you
Kill all the beautiful women
Inside me
And I did not oppose.
Why I favored you
From all women
And I gave you
My town,
My closet
My secret box
The keys to my secret gardens,
Secret gods,
And to my secret water falls;
No woman earned
Such high rank before.

Poem of the Day

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
