Sometimes you don't want to love the person you love
you turn your face away from that face
whose eyes lips might make you give up anger
forget insultIndent_white_space_block_2_letters_1steal sadness of not wanting
to loveIndent_white_space_block_2_letters_1turn away then turn awayIndent_white_space_block_2_letters_1at breakfast
in the evening don't lift your eyes from the paper
to see that face in all its seriousness a
sweetness of concentrationIndent_white_space_block_2_letters_1he holds his book
in his handIndent_white_space_block_2_letters_1the hard-knuckled winter wood-
scarred fingersIndent_white_space_block_2_letters_1turn awayIndent_white_space_block_2_letters_1that's all you can
do old as you are to save yourself from love
