Bi Janus

The middle country seemed right,

full of spines and deserts,

for a liaison neither of us

thought wise given our parting.

We thought we would age together

at a distance, perhaps finding

others to help soothe the wolf,

love being tended fruit, not miracle.

We did, though twenty years

together insinuated

in our souls comforts

all the loves we ever made.

A glistening joy, every liquid

we could exude clinging to us.

Enough about that, the room.

We were boys and old men.

As your namesake did, you ascend

in the whirlwind but on a fiery plane.

Here is what I know of you –

upon my face, an unsighing smile.

Damn you!

My whole life has been spent ignoring, avoiding, despising poetry as mere trash.

As some guy put it, "A tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing."

Then you come along and write stuff that has meaning.

Damn you.

Damn you're good!
