Taking Turns

When R says
               I did nothing
-------------to Pat

It doesn’t mean
nothing was done

I say
------------Come hold
------------the family language


I can’t find you

It’s your turn

Sa Lun Gul

(Grand Rapids, 2012)

I want to write
Poems you can dance to.

Or to fall asleep while
Making love to a man
With slow hands and dream
Of rip-tides and water.

Then again, forget
The dancing.

A driving beat will do.
