the giant lady

now
that they can see it on my face
they tell me that i've been smiling more
they're asking questions — about her

the resurrector
the changer of seas
the lady of the new
the one who dreams of eels
the giant lady

she
can recite the classics by t.s elliott and blake 
and knows everything about
    pier paolo pasolini 
        and federico fellini
the one whose uncle makes
    wooden masks
the one who has the best 
    recipe for porcini

is there an acceptable time period
for falling inlove
because she has been so kind
and so sweet and
so loving

and you know anyway 
if we lived on the planet of jupiter
we would have been in each others' lives
for three months now
