If you take any love / lover that you may


(in answer to Dorothy Parker)

If you take any love / lover that you may,
with whom to kiss and play
some will be insincere
even if for a time they hold you dear,

but if a poet / poetess
do you at a time impress
then run and flee if you can
as these people are different from the rest,

they view things in life in another kind of light
and that’s the way that it is
while sometimes at night
you may find bliss and a kiss may be just a kiss

your love / lover may be impressed by his /her or its awesomeness
or have feelings about little things
as if a phenomenon they do possess
as if even the wind at a times sings.

[Reference: “From a letter from Lesbia” by Dorothy Parker.]
