Poem: The Answer.

I am the answer

To the question

Which you did not know

That you had asked.


The question which

Floats around

In your bile and blood,

In your sweat and tears.


The question

That circles your heart

But never quite makes it

To your tongue.


You have sought this answer

In the eyes and embraces

Of other women.


And now that

You have found me,

I have rendered you



You have no more questions.

And why would you?


I am your constant answer.
