A Poem by jacob erin-cilberto

arrangement

 

 

you were a subtle interruption 

love as split ends

to a wild freedom

the youngest I was

the oldest you were

teacher, 

mentor

a course in awkward passion

 

I found me somewhere in that course

failure not an option

passing a wonton pleasure.

Older lovers when we are young and youthful can teach us many things about life love and sex.

I'm not sure about this one J. Have read it a few times. You know split ends are no good. They spoil the whole. Need cutting off from the main. This isn't about hair, it's about a person. Some people similar to split ends aren't good for you. You have to separate from them.
