The Art Of Questions

Poem By alex haywood

A question is a fruit
ready to be picked
and release it's nectar
at the first bite
of a knowing mouth
or else fall off the tree
of it's own overripe weight
to lie unpicked
on the ground
of indifference

'How much do you love me? '
withered on the tree
'How much could you
have loved me? '
brimming with
missed opportunity
lies unpicked
both unfulfilled
but what an improvement
that inquiry
would have been
a heartbeat ago

in a way that makes me think

for the chastity of my youth

First Time In A Long Time

Today I danced while cooking
kind of slow, hesitant at first
like the kids smiles
watching mom-dad
