The Continuing Embrace





Egon Schiele, Die Umarmung, Österreichische Gallery, Vienna, 1917


It can’t be much more than it was.

It can’t be much less than it wasn’t.


whatever, we love each other still.

notwithstanding all our trysts and transgressions


condemned to live

with the conflicts and the treasons


that are part of life, at the same time as

we grasp for a way to move beyond them


knowing that, however difficult, this is our destiny

as we embrace yet again.  

Continuing embrace


            A Place for Us


          Against Your Will?
