    my old shirt
    so comfortably resting
    on your young breasts

    Susan,
    _I scold myself for my "too many comments on t/w," but I can't overlook your jewel!
    _Reading your words is -sensing- and by sensing them, how could anyone -not feel-?
    Heartfull !
    tnx -M

    your heartbeat

    susan, your poem holds my heart.


    your old sweater
    wraps around me
    without your arms

    your side of the bed-
    chilling winds
    through the pines

    Susan, your words are words that prove that we don't need many words.

    rainy autumn morn
    blackbirds line the wire--
    where sun shined days before
