To cheat on Maine islands 
days of laughter, nights of sighing.
To love without ceasing 
flowering orchards, salty sea-things.
To say without shyness 
“unreal city, you have killed me.”

We take each night’s journey 
to the hotel in a hurry,
where we love without worry 
on a bed that’s five days dirty.
And we read without irony 
from a book my husband bought for me.
When I fell on the concrete 
it was lovely,
because you could see what’s been running 
so hot in me.
But when I fell on the concrete, 
you went white as a sheet
and wished that nothing in this world would ever hurt me. 
Well, keep wishing.
Because when I look in my future, 
I don’t see you and don’t wish to.
Idle talk made when I’m lying 
by your side on some Maine island
is too funny to me, honey, 
so let’s drop it.
If you really want to love me, 
well, then do it.
If you really want to love me, 
well, then do it.
