We Are More Alike Than Different


I hear you

on the last page

in a journal

we are not different
we are not that different
you and I

you the superstar
I modern day czar
I have my luxury
matter of perception
how I have learned
in tumultuous weeks
my room is silent

that is all—

and the most important thing
is to love ourselves
It is the only consideration

or we shall fade

over and again and again and more
maybe then love will win
from HERO, a collection of poems 1990-2001
