Eidolon

I want to wake you
with a kiss

Bring you to the patio
where breakfast waits

Feed you strawberries,
blueberries, compliments.

I want to take you
by the hand

Walk you to the beach
where waves wait

Give you an ocean,
the sun, my heart.

I would love you—
I would love you so easily
if you were real.


(From the book Selected Poems 2004-2007)
