    In the gene pool of eternity past
    Spirits vie for flesh
    In the drama of a woman's great need
    Moments yearn for names

    In this distaff proscenium I choke
    Suffocate and die
    The labels I thought I needed for love
    Slapped on like a mask
    Drain all vibrance from the time I spend with
    My unfettered friends

    In the boy's world of laughter, beer and song
    Where love has no name
    I could learn from them in the dark back room
    Forego all explanations and just be

    Drop all of what we think we should be, and just be, and love will find us, in its own time. As a teenager, I had this down to a science, and then you know, life happens. Thank you for always providing us with words to think about river.

    No degree of separation could elevate this piece any higher, it already exists in that loftly place; our hearts.
