I Love The Idea of You

i love

the idea

of you.

the fact that we

could sit

and listen to jazz

and appreciate it

in much the same way.

and that you have much

to teach me…

we could travel

to Newport,

or Montreux 

or San Francisco.

and me,

who balks at cooking for others

(especially on demand)

would love to demonstrate

my plant-based creations

for you.

there is little chance

i could ever reach you,

teach you

beyond what you know;

or challenge

what is comfortable

for you.

in these areas

few men go.

but, 

i love

the idea 

of you.

we could laugh,

dance;

recite Sufi chants;

we

could be partners

in ‘crime’

and rightness;

live and love

in joy,

and brightness;

i love

the idea

of

you.
