Multitudes: For my American Wife

Multitudes: For my American Wife

(for Anaïs and Marina) 

One should start with your eyes 
when describing you. 

Jeweled pools for our looking 
and seeing. 

Moon and stars 
for our journeys with and without you. 

Lock and key opening 
the mitre gates 
to amorous dreams. 


Now your eyes are the eyes
of our children
who never made it

(because love is never easy)

laughing and crying
in the summer rain

Swimming naked in our lakes
and in our rivers.
