here is how to be

here is how to be
(in love) is how to be:
watch silver melt
watch grassblades bleed
watch due north venture southerly
see dark branching blanch
hear ritornelli cinch the deal
hear overtones become overt
hover in the pantryway
until the father floats
listen to kismet beat the black belt
then recur as people svelte prefer
devil-may-care aborted tension
via soft repair to the obliving room
and sulk then smile then ponder
how we are what we've become
(in love)
a glove-in-hand remedium
