Waltzing with the Devil
Bidding farewell to my movie star friends I say
It’s too stressful.
Farewell for awhile
only for awhile.
I cannot go on like this
getting my heartbeat up over your foibles
to get into your graces and stay there
Your handkerchief flutters
my handkerchief flutters.
To gasp for breath at the bidding’s end
all wreck and rib
unrelieved, still alone
inconceivably more unsuccessful:
my dear not goodbye.
