For Sue

suefranceGenerally I am loathe
to make pronouncements but
we live many lives in one
and I don’t presume
that cheers up anybody else
but I’m glad because I need more
more fried calamari and soft shell crabs
more salt crack caramel
more poems by Charlie Simic
more clear crescent moons over
pink and gold horizons
more sapphire skies at nine p.m.
more glockenspiel hymns
from ice cream trucks distantly hymning
more of Sue beside me gently sighing
more swimming
