Pas de deux

for Twink

Would that I fell for you, and you for me,

Since each our other hopes are gone. So please

Let us take comfort in a loving breeze

While humour sweeps us in its irony—

And as if love were mere commodity

We’ll see in each other what we both do miss

Elsewhere, and so, with boldness such as this

Let us love then, with clear absurdity!

We’ll leave all others in our churning wake—

We’ll make ourselves the perfect rebound pair

And see elusive true love everywhere:

Thus in delusion let each fancy take

The other, and transform within the mind

All faults; so, glad we’ll be, since love is blind.
