Our graying hair
by Andrew Taggart
I have gray hairs. I have long hair. How long will it be before I have gray hair?
I long for a radiant woman whose hairs are also gray. I see her long hair and her dark eyes and I crave for this being. I see her skin and I crave for her.
How long will it be before she has gray hair?
Will my radiant love and I age and gray well? Will we write less and shine forth more? Will we, during the summer doldrums, lie in bed in corpse pose and sweat softly and touch only our pinkie fingers?
How long will it be before we long less and less because we are alone less? How long before we die?
I will want her silence as she will want mine. We will have no need to lend. We will want our love to be full and full and full of silence.
