to love--to fall--is not a question.
to touch--to kiss--to speak--those are the questions.


oh, antoinette.
is it true
what they say?
have all beautiful things
sad destinies?
no, of course not--
of course not.
to happiness!
is there no
happiness?
no, of course not.
only an interminable
transcendence
untouched
unencumbered
by your
blue air
and alien eyes--
so full of
darkness,
a disturbing
(impossible)
loneliness.
or is it just
a mistaken
loveliness?
can you feel it?
pungent,
swarthy and thick
brazen and sweet
to the touch.
oh, antoinette.
can you ever
understand?
no, of course not--
of course not.
