I can weave this life into a fine maze -

an obsidian puzzle of interlocking pieces.

But without you it's just a child's toy on a coffee table

and holds my interest for just as long


If I chose, I could set about the sky

drawing faint chalk outlines around constellations

to detail the stellar history of each

But without you it's just so much stars.


If she were a pair of turning eyes

I was a sizzling rib-eye steak.


I can make of you a legend -

so that all your choices are some great destiny.

But without you, it's a child's book on the nightstand -

forgotten easily when the lights go out.
