Verse: Profile

with your name
as I am
I do not know you

you who
even among legends
are legendary
who took from me
my old ennui
fed my faith
with tender
and lanced me
with tiny
pinpricks of lust

You might say
that I
obscure you
like clouds
with my
lapsed language
these loose
pejorative words
veil you
in observation
make you as common
as anyone
as me
