paris-2008-02 (1)our adult heart assembles
none too lightly, mores, edicts, decrees
imposing justifications for
tears, longing, craving, hunger
wrapped in a dichotomy of
detachment, aloofness, benumbed want

while a child’s heart, warms, calms
imbues joy, laughter, calm to
the most beastly soul, so to
re-attain your child’s heart within
is to find peace in grievous war
attaining a greater self
