    poem

    reading
    to name
    you

    become
    your
    words

    alphabet
    of
    beginnings

    ends

    forevers


    to permit
    one
    a hung
    of maybes

    upside down
    to a gust
    of verbs
    nouns
    and
    ad
    verbs

    to hang
    asleep
    in a withered
    city

    the shoulder
    of
    a wolf

    the cheek
    of a shadowed
    thing


    to put
    one
    on a beach

    one's
    own
    dune

    a May
    apple
    with a worm

    at peace
    with your own
    dragon


    to kiss
    the mouth
    of expectations

    remember
    what was
    understood

    but since
    forgotten

    "Don't worry about readers. Their on their own and will find meanings for your poems in their histories and yearnings. Let language go where it wants. If readers respond to your language, the poem can't help but mean." Poet Richard Hugo
