I’ve never been a fan of poetry, but I just discovered Charles Simic and I’ve been reading him all afternoon.
Do you trust me?
Will you let me go feral for a time?
Will you take the reins and tame me again when I return?
Will you be the stable I can return to, hot and sweaty from my run in the wild?
Will you hold me tight, wash the dirt and sweat away, and bed me down?
Can I trust you?
