With All Due Respect…

You deprive me of my solitude

Yet loneliness remains.

I long for you as often

As a pinecone longs for chains.

I love you like the Jewish faith

Love bread with time to leaven

And I’d describe your sense of humor

As a pH of 11.

When, alas, my eyes are on you

I feel no sense of hesitation

That the prudent course of action

Is a quick defenestration.

You’ll never feel a lacking

Of the things you never knew

And I hope that everyone you meet

Are just as great as you!
