[Untitled]

I met a Chinese girl 43 years ago today
was in Lindoz, Greece she was barely 19
and very cute the men of the town and the
boys all sought after her       she only
had to walk up to the square when she
wanted something and in her walking
and in her smiling and with her charms
she got everything that she desired now
this old hermit’s memories and this old
wool blanket      the only things keeping
him warm      a daily diet of figs and prunes
keeping him regular

in this too-busy-mind
she walks by
over and over and over
