… in Equal Parts

For –

After all –

You do know me.

I am Helen;

Shade, in equal parts

Of your faithful wife,

Glamorous mistress,

Daughter, mother;

Your nameless, shameless

Guilt-free, no-number

Fantasy fuck.

I am Helen,

This is night;

Tomorrow the

Horse and I

Will be gone …

But you ?

You will never forget.

Boto

I am (the only)

Sundaughter-child

Of Father Never-Still River

And Mother Daytime Sky.

She of changing mood

And appearance,

Capable equally of

Tempers terrible as storm

And sensitive extremes.

He of deep

Born-again memory

And the silver-shouldered strength

To move mountains

And souls.
