i haven't had much luck

    with the lisas, janets, ellens and so on

better with the men folk


from my grandpa who was a hardcase

    but taught me something about grit

to my father, who is soft-hearted


to professor eliot and colin's grandfather

    and colin

who is teaching me about a different kind of love


not platonic, not romantic

     something else—human to human, human kindness

it begins in the heart and grows




i've heard it said that good people shine

i'm starting to believe it, finally
