Happy he was that he was married to a woman
who, he did not know,
and he failed to forward a reason why he married,
and he did not know the meaning of woman
but she gave him joy.
Persistent questions did not drive him anywhere
but he was a lost man as he sheepishly looked up
and tried to count the stars in the clear sunny day
and laughed and laughed.
Many wanted to reach over and wished to feel
for a pulse of love they did not know
he carried or not.
