a heart you know

Do you see them? They deliver your mail, they give you

your morning cup of java, they hand you

your change. I know you won’t see their paparazzi pics in the glossies

or those sleazy websites that feed the hungry, hungry need.

No spotlight for your neighbors, no fame for your lovers, no stars

to glitter for your pleasure. And yet, you will find

a heart you know, can trust, believe in. Blood coursing

through pliant veins and eyes that mirror your joy, absorb

the tears of your disappointments. Every man, every woman

you will find, though the path may meander and sometimes rocks

may make you stumble. Laughing

they will call out to your wonder and you can shout back,

I hear you, I see you, you are mine! We belong

to each other. There really is no other.
