Two In One Sentence
for D.B.A.

we have something
or are having something
sans doute

recall lines from "Iron Weed"
Tom Waits' character, Rudy, says

doctor says I got cancer
it's the first thing I ever got

she and I have something as severe
and similarly, very likely,
it too is a life sentence

God, what attachment
what exists between Dee and me

I live to love her
hardly anything in existence
more rewarding

I don't feel I deserve all these palm tree leaves to be thrown at my feet. I thank you.
