After watching a documentary about:

Derrida





you ask to talk in specifics
of that which cannot be described.
what is love?
i can give you dates
a time when i first saw him.
but the falling in love-
it is not named-
as much as it sits here
between us
in this moment
as it did then
and has.


I wrote this several years ago, but after having fallen in love with my husband, it is more true today than it was then.
