Starleaf Dance

  each lie staring at the stars
  and each at
The Other
  things of life come up and we talk
  about fate, about me
  about beauty, about
  lie at peace with the world and I
  lie to the world that I am glad that
He -
  comes out and lies with you
  and I look away to
  see that the star dances with
The Leaf
  hides the star, and then reveals her
  and again, in rhythm the leaf and
The Star
  moves behind the leaf
  moves herself from me
  as she takes her path, knowing that
I -
  leave her to her
  leaf and gladly go inside.
