Poem for My Love by June Jordan

Poem for My Love

by June Jordan

(published in the 2005 collection, Directed by Desire: The Collected Poems of June Jordan)


How do we come to be here next to each other   

in the night

Where are the stars that show us to our love   

inevitable

Outside the leaves flame usual in darkness   

and the rain

falls cool and blessed on the holy flesh   

the black men waiting on the corner for   

a womanly mirage

I am amazed by peace

It is this possibility of you

asleep

and breathing in the quiet air
