The Sunday Poem: Diana Huntress... Between You and Me

For years Albuquerque poet Diana Huntress has been writing tiny jewel-like poems...hard little nuggets whose veins twist, run deep, and crystalize. This is one.

Deeply involved with the Rio Grande Writers Association for a long time and very close to many in the writing community including the late Judson Crews, Diana continues to work and write in Nob Hill.


BETWEEN YOU AND ME


Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar
Love is like that too.
But who knows?
I think I drink
Wine but there is none
In my cup and the hand
That holds the stem
Thinks it is a rose.

I'm crazy about it. Witty, clear, surprising, delightful.

Sweet poem with a catchy double edge.

Your pic reminds me of the Randy Newman song:
You Can Keep Your Hat On
So thanks for the poem and the photo!

The more I read this poem the more I see it it, or is it my imagination.
