Poetry by Jeff Green


Each Word is a Kiss

A tumble of words fill my mind with suggestions
Implosions of concepts too deep to express
Can spaces between ever answer the questions
When deep in your dreams there’s a mind to undress

A river of writing is flowing between us
Inventing excuses for being apart
On dark winter nights when the planets have seen us
I’ve asked them to carry me straight to your heart

Don’t ever abandon your hopes for the future
We’re all of us born on the wings of our past
Our souls are attached by a Moon silver suture
A literate love song that’s fated to last

And here on the page where our verses combine
Each word is a kiss for my sweet Valentine
