Listening

Listening

I drift from my many
who I love, and

I want to explode now
my only intimate love

because I
want to soothe
his deep chatter, so

Dougie Wougie
I say, Listen

I hear every word,
you ever said
and I love
how you’d chuckle, and

how you look at me
and drink of me when
I sip a kiss of your nectar.

It’s a giggle how much
you love me, silly me
lovely me you say

and I believe you because
you let me see you cry.
