Looking for notes on a story about a panda I found something else, dated April 2006.
From another room
Quietly you say,
"I love you."
Out of the blue.
I ask to know
Where this "I love you" was born
And you say,
" Watching the steam rise from a cup of tea,
Listening to the radio, and
The music I heard yesterday."
This is the poetry of everyday conversation.
