The Birthday Wish

Words have not passed between us
going on forty years now,

so much has failed,
and what has succeeded

has succeeded to a fault,
your lips, your thighs, your sighs

have belonged to someone else
for so long,

but make not a difference to me;
the state I’m in

being the state I’m in
my whole life through,

living it as if
it was always yesterday.
