SUBJECT: What Is A Word For Complete?

Who lifts your
spirits?
****************Look at all                   
****************the grass
****************just like you—

defending
the roots.
To escape
****************to flip,
********to zip
****************zap back.

What                is a                   voice?

The Sage
talks about
ways to love
****************to support
****************the edifice
****************this circus

How brief
my mate,
my star—
****************marriage,
****************a love
****************vacuum

I hold you—
I miss you

too                   soon                 we’re                dust                  again
