FRIENDS for Robert Sward

                 how often they surprise you
                 with a sudden word

                 that immediately enters your heart.

                 of any kind are complex, sometimes problematical,
                 and yet
                 the heart is a foam mattress

                 that receives and sends things back

                 the heart
                 knows another heart

                 when it sees one
                 and it knows how to speak

                 in its deep heart language
                 which is,
                 though sometimes soundless, wordless,

                 sometimes a sword,
                 the only language

                 that flowers
                 in the long night that is age
