{one could say so much on the subject...]

one could say so many things on the subject
of catching time, and losing love
and always, yes always miss the point; [you made]
perfectly clear
in all your words of history, learned wisdom and
your anecdotal, yet for the most part, objective inquiries.
I enjoyed you,
in more than just the allegorical sense of the word.
There was never an indifferent flavor tasted,

made poetry leap from the pages and into our hearts; are uncalculated
and cannot be rushed or explained with ease, cannot be bound to a time signature.
It is both sharp and flat both held and released
the [de]crescendo….
oh, I don’t know.

I just know that yours beat a rhythm that I recognized.

You could never be as candid as I am
and it always struck me as odd,
