The Muse and Constant of Jody
you have apparently enchanted me,
drunk on such enchantment,
find myself forgetting not to live and forgetting not to love,
as it should be…
as I believe It should be for us all.
I thought of you before I was born
and I will think of you for all of eternity after I have passed from this world.

You are a constant
in my being
and I am a constant
regardless of our transient states.
We are one,

but we became two to explore all of creation;
to learn, to grow, to wander, to see, and to appreciate all else as itself,

against all of the obstacles of chaos
the proffered dreams and desires of others,
that we want to return
to one another,
want to return to
our sublime unity of a transcending
