day of poems

Since Oren started his blog today with poems, I will do the same. I'm working on a poem for M right now, but until it's done, here's a lovely poem from Matthew Rohrer whose book I just reserved.

by Matthew Rohrer

I believe there is something else

entirely going on but no single
person can ever know it,
so we fall in love.

It could also be true that what we use
everyday to open cans was something
much nobler, that we'll never recognize.

I believe the woman sleeping beside me
doesn't care about what's going on
outside, and her body is warm
with trust
which is a great beginning.
