SAID VENUS TO MARS by Janet K. Brennan

SAID VENUS TO MARS
Janet K. Brennan

The groan of another day.
She is in her place
watching wind- born blossoms
in their journey to nowhere.
She catches them, lets them go,
inhaling sweet, those flowers,
sprinkled with perfume from Eros,
while you fly through your largest dream
pursuing destiny.
She teaches, you stagger,
blinded by the dust
from her heart swept clean.
Still you moan another day
not comprehending why
you love her so
even though
you knew before you came.
