I Will Love You Till The Day I Die (Love Songs Of A Cancer Patient)
We awake cushioned by the down of your quilt,
A single eye shimmers by the moon.
You turn and think thoughts so mindless
Lick your lips,
Tongue like a snake prepared to uncoil.
Your mouth opens then wavers in midair,
A star crossed thought slips away with the moon.
We try to remember we are in a room.
Touch my hips,
Tongue like a cobra lost in its cage.
You speak finally, and you say
''Will you love me till no more day
-s remain and the sun eats the
world in wrath.''
I spoke and I believe I said
''Tomorrow my good dear I
shall be dead.''
(or so I hope) .
