Excerpt 2 (of 2)

Be forever sailing
toward the island
in your mind's eye
and remember
it's the trip that counts
not the getting there.

You are a great person.
I decided that before I met you.
It isn't difficult now
to confirm my opinion.
Nor would it have been
had I decided you were a jerk.

In a perfect world
I would be perfectly useless.
