Vacation Valentine

What is true of all
must be true of each one
and yet what is true of one
is not true for all
even though there are only
a certain number of moods
and a fixed number of perspectives
which have to be married together
slept with for your life a night with
an attitude at least as conscious as a gun
and then each will graduate
through all the schools of emotion
and the long summers of reflection
without being troubled even once
by the illusion of loss or death
