Let’s be honest:
These days every poem is about you.

When I write about Palestine,
your fierce conviction fires the lines.

When I write about birds,
your love of nature guides me.

When I write about the night sky,
I see the stars through your eyes.

And when I write about you,
I can never find enough words.

So I’ll kiss you under the streetlight
on a night as warm as day,

wondering at my luck
under the glow of Orion.
