Gwendolyn Joyce Mintz

we are

you and me we
are rabid wanderers comic
strip bubbles shouting i love
you me we
are giraffe-twisted
balloons that refuse to burst echoed
prayer our own
language a jubilant
drum strength invisible-spider-
web strong we are mouths
meeting in quiet song
bone-felt jazz and a drop
of the blues we are you are
me we
oh, yes we are
