Guest Poet: Bill Lapham


For Darlene

I know you know
There's an icy harbor
In my heart for
Hallmark days.
But it melts when
I think of you.
Why do we get
Jostled like we do,
Find ways always
To remain steady
Through it all, and
Kiss at the end
Of the day, still
In love?

  2. It's a privilege to hear men reveal our softer sides to our partners- here's to you and yours Bill

  3. Oh Bill, you silver tongue devil, you. This was great.
