When I tell you that I will write
A poem for you. I am really saying
That you intrigue me and merit the attention,
The effort, and the focus required to write a poem
About you that examines your ingenuity
And your charm and the way you move like
Japanese steel wrapped in silk – a poem about you
Is also about the connection between minds, how
A person unknown becomes known. When two
People shake hands, when their eyes meet, in that
Millisecond, a choice is made: friend or foe or both?
Then comes the second choice: it is one of distance
That a poem about you would consider…how near
Does one step? Lean in and toward or pull away?
The moth would understand. Certain men like poems
Like sex fill the crevices of a soul in search of fire.
Beg entry into the core of our being. A poem
About you is a poem about sensuality, intensity, strength
And all those wonderful qualities that build a man
Into something a bit more, a little better, so rare and
Necessary that it makes women write poems about him.~
