Secret Valentine

The secret purpose of thinking
Is a philosophy to cross the threshold
Of what to do with the fact
Of the unknown and the unknowable
In our lives and words
Even in their presumption
Of the existence of some truth
Which gives the game away
Are the most sacred things we have
Whose daily struggle is to separate
Thoughts from feelings and sensing
In order to be able to look at both
Of them separately and see them
For what they really are
Different as fathers from sons
Mothers from daughters
