Love Poem Two

Now and then
someone shows up
to explain the world
and you listen
to her voice
it may not always be in perfect rhyme
but the words are there
and they come from the heart
of the matter
and you can’t seem to get
enough of the sweetness of her song



I set about to write of Tao
but there was nothing to say
is that when you get it?
I set about to write of God
but out in the sky at night
there was no one there
I thought I should believe in something
but the evidence was missing
so I got myself a dog
now that’s a true believer
