Trust In Love
for D’Anthra B. Adderley
Is this going to work,
this experiment you've requested,
this separation?

Is it working for you?
It is not working for me.

You suggest that love were something
that was in our hands
and we could put it on a shelf
and when we wished, take it down again.

What though if the truth is
that we are in the hands- in the grip of love
and we had to do its bidding-
and laugh or weep naturally in response?

You want to be in charge-
you want to be in control
and end upon the rocks?

You want to shipwreck
not knowing were the shallows-
where the shoals are
when love does and therefore
should be trusted
