Wheat Ears – Selected Poems


Finally they called the joy a sin

and my agreement with you a transgress

what did they leave for us

other than mediocrity and

leaden clouds? What did they

leave other than their laws

written on desolate cenotaphs?

Finally they named our joy a sin

and our understanding another trespass

but they failed to see through

the veil to immense brightness

of our strength They couldn’t cut

beyond the rind they couldn’t taste

the sweetness of our love
