• I've Been Thinking about Love Again

    Spring 2022

    Those who live to have it and
    those who live to give it.

    Of course there are those for whom both are true,
    but never in the same measure.

    Those who have it to give are
    like cardinals in the snow. So easy
    and beautifully lit. Some
    are rabbits. Hard to see
    except for those who would prey upon them:
    all that softness and quaking and blood.
