An Intimate Life

by Glenn Currier

An Intimate Life

Van Gough, St. Croix, and western skies,
Saint-Sans and Freud and Jesus Christ
the deaths of kin and children's lives
tequila, coke, and war's zeitgeist
in treks and tents we loll and sweat
entangled evenings in the stars
the spangled dawns we won't forget
awakenings, lies, and nights in cars
regrets, confessions, comings back,
embracing choice instead of fears
accepting gray, not white or black
we stand, we hope beyond our years.
our hands together dig the soil
and plant a bed of daffodils;
upon our heads a crown of lights
a crown of lights made of our hearts

[Glenn Currier - January 21, 2002]
