jasmine



jasmine
did not bloom
last spring

in the fall
trees shed leaves
while still

green
but that was
par for the course

given the foulness
of decisions
delayed

elongating
distance from
heart to soul

to the point
of a single snap
as though mono-

filament
whose gauge was
ill chosen

for a task
and awesome caliber
of game

now, my love
it's almost blackberry
winter here

once again
you are still
nowhere

& i, a kite
whose lines are
knots

with you
my Gordian
tangle.
