New Love

Living Poetry

Should I Enter the Boat?

six friends and I were told

we have only one big chance

they say the storm will come

I have already memorized Pablo Neruda’s Sonnet XVII

in hopes that the next world will be

filled with a hidden secret love

yesterday’s love then will be irrevocably gone

a lost infancy remembered no more

but our new love will merely be

within our memory’s and imagination’s reach
