50/50 Odds On Love

 

maybe you can make it
if you forget about the odds

slip them under the pillow
while you’re learning to love

be honest
be gentle with your secrets

take long walks through your bodies
& taste everything
wash each other

play the lead in your production
and let your partner steal the show

grow raindrops together
& watch them flower

commit your possessions to the hours
for you may have a lifetime
to parade
to flaunt

to wrap quietly around your minds
and warm you
—John Thomas Dodds—
