Poetry

So … people are like … at some festival in Texas? Ya got me. Thanks to Muruch for this one, as I picked out the poem to go with the song instead of the other way ’round.

Love rode 1500 miles
by Judy Grahn

Love rode 1500 miles on a grey
hound bus & climbed in my window
one night to surprise
both of us.
the pleasure of that sleepy
shock has lasted a decade
now or more because she is
always still doing it and I am
always still pleased. I do indeed like
aggressive women
who come half a continent
just for me; I am not saying that patience
is virtuous, Love
like anybody else, comes to those who
wait actively
and leave their windows open.
