Voice To Whisper Why - Poem by Susan Lacovara

Tonight should syllables fail you

Like soldiers gone AWOL

Struggling for voice to whisper why

Fear never that you are not heard

Your laughter echoes round the canyons

Of my heart and the black hill mountains

Where a coyote cries 'neath the moon

And the songs you did sing

In your classic Cabaret

Will be lifted like a glass of fine Cabernet

To fall from our lips

With the sultry sway of hips

Springing up steps dripping with sweat

Sweltering on a disco dancefloor

Alive for all time is the sound

Of hello after too long an absence

Needing less of sentences

And more of entrances

In and out of the braided brotherhood

That we wove with love's embrace

You are not a stilled voice

In a stranger's face

You are beauty and love

Long heard above

The silence that separates

Our comprehension

Of no explanation

Of how a thief in the night

Somehow thinks it right

Leaving me no words

Leaving us no reason

Leaving dangling paticiples

And our endless intentions

Of always having a friendship

That requires no spoken words
