Love and Faith

is built with faith
it feels time
and has sense of place
it is part of life
and hidden desire
the kick inside
the unforgettable fire

without faith
is like calamari without taste
like a plate of tiny tires
and the end of a meteor shower
in the cold morning
where one by one
the stars cease to fall
and we freeze in the grass
looking up at the dark

We are all in the gutter
but some of us

look to the stars
