Chiffon dreams

love in the rain

A serious young woman
studying literature
at university,
I was
astonished
to discover
the similarities
between love poems
regardless of
the lover
or the beloved.

Overlapping words
planes circling the same city of light
as if they’d all been written by the same poet.

This made me believe in love
not the hard, sharp thing itself
but the suggestion of love,
an idea that assembles itself
each night as a shared
chiffon dream
and we are all
the dreamers.
