my affair with the sun


somewhere outside of taos   the sky very blue

the earth very red   the warmth of the place

and day enters my body   the chill that is me

is thawed   i became me again   we enter

the georgia o'keefe museum   there is nothing

in the museum   not her paintings   not her

philosophy   that touches me   i leave the

others   find a place in the sun   face that hot   

new mexican sun as an equal   though i am

not equal   i am bold   am honest   have a dialog

with her   explain and listen   like a lover   with

patience   with secrets   with truths   with skill   

with resolution   i take her warmth   she gives 

me her warmth   i give her myself   save nothing
