Today's poem is by Elaine Equi

Love Song for an Enemy

I love you
but not enough

to kill you
or let you live.

Such indecision
cost me years of sleep.

My mind
full of doubts
like geese.

One day of reckoning
I'll have a secret rendezvous
with indifference.

Step back
while you pass
like a cloud.
