RANDOM FORS
Eat for sustenance
Drink for pleasure
Think for reason
Love for harmony
Breathe for life
Pray for eternity
Fornicate for fun
Time for a change

Relationship

In order to save the relationship
We will never see each other again

prayers I'd not uttered
petitions I'd not pursued
then snow in the night

a fresh white blanket
on the mountainside at dawn
concealing the dew

Victor Fleming

Death

Dost to dust.

Applause-- and can't resist adding Thom Gunn's "Jamesian":

Their relationship consisted
In discussing if it existed.

SPRING

Spring
suddenly burst;
screen doors

The state
of semi-involuntary
voidable
involvement.

Judy Durrant

What will will
more often than
what will wills.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark
