Their Favorite Words

100 years from now

I hope my words grace the tongues

of men and women

yearning to speak their truth

________

100 years from now

with tea and fresh flowers

or on a subway, clutching tight

the words, steadying their day

________

100 years from now

on yellowed paper and bent pages

tucked away between their favorites

words, adored and well read

________

100 years from now

scribbled in the margins

is a name, next to theirs

unspoken wishes

________

100 years from now

I hope they quote me to their lovers

in secret letters, from beneath balconies

and at Cathedral aisles end

________
