UNLOCKED (for Loreen Strasser)

admit it:
when as a vagrant


i climbed through
your window, i broke
your heart.

(it was unlocked.)

later i loaned you
my wife for a while --
let's leave
out that part.

i met cold confident
you but found
the way through
to something more human --
the broken parts heal
and the girl becomes
a real woman.

oh the moods and places
we have been dear,
sweet loreen.
