She Loves Like An Elf

— Feb. 2021, Heres Pang.

 

A Bond Invincible

bring sets of armor and gear,
crates of nourishment and safety nets
to places barren, chaotic, or unforgiving,
and hope that one shall survive.

one could bring it all,
yet the Only thing
that does not rot, erode,
or become molded over
amidst the commotions
of  endless Wilderness,
remains a True Love’s
Touch.

Bittersweet Faith

resignations: made sexy 

My March Madness

“…Nor dare I chide the world-without-end hour
Whilst I, my sovereign, watch the clock for you.
Nor think the bitterness of absence sour
When you have bid your servant once adieu;
Nor dare I question with my jealous thought
Where you may be, or your affairs suppose,
But like a sad slave, stay and think of nought,
Save, where you are how happy you make those.
So true a fool is love that in your will
Though you do anything, he thinks no ill.” 

—W.S.

when I’m not busy being youthful

I begin to notice that, the heart, after one thing or another, does mature a little

 

Love at Midtown

I fell
In Love
With a fine,
Young Lady

From the Other
Side
Of town—

She North
And I South—

Two neighborhoods, separate lives,
And both having
Miraculously crossed,

Would never
Once
Be
The same.

Love & Bigfoot

Some of us

Perceive

Love

 

As we do

Bigfoot,

 

Scratching

Our hairs

Out

 

Pondering

The certainty

Of its state

Of Being.

 

There are

Enthusiasts who

Set out on

Lengthy ventures,

Hiking through

Dense forestry,

Over Hills

In endless ranges,

And past

Low,

Shadowy Valleys—

 

Only to return

With anecdotes;

No hard evidence

Sealed

In sterile tubes.

 

And

There are people

Who will try to

Convince you

 

That it exists

In the wrong

Places

By forging

False Footprints—

Just to mess with you.

 

But

If you care about

The Bigfoot

Regardless of the

Stories—

Books and Articles and TV shows

Painting it

In Blinding colors—

 

And

You aren’t afraid

To urge

Your own feet

Out and About,

 

Surprised might

You be,

Upon coming across

Bigfoot

In your trails,

 

Looking as Real

As the Ache

In your heels,

 

And finally

Knowing

So it is

Your

Love.
