NODES OF TRUE FANTASY

Ernest Williamson III*

I don’t like you
nor is the sun a god with an opinion
unless we denude opinions and deem
them
truth
well,
what I mean to say
is that I like you
not like me
but I do
seem to fancy you
not in my imagination
I mean
I remember
watching you write
in your purple diary
on the steps of your brownstone
last Saturday night
you were lapping impatient
rain
drops
and your eyes were light
purple
hazel
mixed with
concern
concern for
what
your thoughts
were
telling you
things
like
why am I sitting
outside
in the rain
laughing
messing up my hair
again
on the weekend
knowing that a guy
is reading my heart
and spilling it poetically
pitifully
right
now
