Whatever the Cost May Be

Preparing for the fight of our life


Love, the love is always

there, but you always wonder

if the life is real as the flesh

of your wife’s soft shoulder


as she sleeps, or if you

have slipped on her slender

hip into a dream as it rises

like the dark green hill


in a scurvy-ridden sailor’s

nightmare, and you wake

up sweating because

you know you are lost.
