A Splintered DilemmaCruel insoluble equation of love and sex
Splintered dilemma of day and night,
Peace and war.
In the interval between dark and light and dark again
In the lightning night—
He might change from child to adult—
In the lightning flash
back to child again
In the dream ridden eternal night.
She can turn down the sound
So that no thunder is heard
No beating of the heart, no gasping breath.
for a while.
So that she and the darkness are tinged with sadness …
Paint it five if you like.
In the interval he changes from lover to friend,
then to stranger far away.
