WORDLESS

Image result for adam and eve took their solitary way

How complex the world is!

How many words would it take

For a worldly man

To say how complex? Start with: This

Is more complex than that. I can

Be ironic now, by being wordless.

I will call my poem “Wordless.” If a man

Wishes to be a poet, this

Will always dog him: Love is wordless.

Learning is wordless. She smiled—

And then—only then—were we reconciled.

Words did not make me love poetry.

When I had nothing more to say,

The poem took my hand. And found a way.
