Step Cousin

You are my friend,
In the way that I don't hardly know you:
You are my step-cousin,
If such a thing exists...
It seems to me, though,
That you have his style,
His knack for gifts, unusual
And thoughtful;
I mean, it makes me think,
Am I that uncle?
Am I that friend?

Not The Length Of Time

It is not the length of time we have for love,
But that we've loved at all --
In a single moment of true love we create An instant of infinity that this ever-
Recycling universe can never reclaim...
