i sometimes dream of Emily Dickinson,

her seemingly stoic allegories

speaking of lost love


flies buzzing, yellow halos,

unblossomed thighs, apple orchards,

new shoes in Eden

 


secretly, she was a woman

i once loved even though

she didn’t know,

wouldn’t acknowledge,

wouldn’t have known what

to do even if she had known


she was my home town,

all my favorite places to visit,

walking in her streets,

elm lined

lovers’ lanes


i would have died for her Beauty,

instead i died for her Truth


 

today i saw a woman

who reminded me of her


i wanted to tell her

that it was she who touched

my face and found me there
