  • When loving comes down
    like this
    I know why blues singers sing.

    I pity the caged bird,
    It deserves freedom.
    To sing emancipation songs.

    How long does it last?
    The euphoric aftermath of long, hot sex on a cool day.
    Kisses between clean sheets
    Under bright skies and blinding sun.

    The wanting.
    Does it go away?

    The brain in love.
    So incredibly useless,.

    Helpless and dependent.

    The very definition of unfree.
