    The Kiss” Auguste Rodin 1840 –1917

    Or Was It Nine

    Perhaps we had only seven nights
    I don’t know
    I didn’t count them
    how would I have been able to
    Perhaps no more than six
    or was it nine?
    I don’t know
    but they’re treasured
    as the longest love.

    Perhaps
    four or five nights like those
    but precisely like those
    perhaps
    one could live on it
    as a large love
    all of one’s life
