If We Could Love

If we could love
like dogs or silk worms,
all neurons firing,
we would not
need our disappointments.

We would light up
the bush telegraph
and abandon
sullen longing
altogether.

What of our philosophy?
Do you think,
when crawling over diamonds,
a thousand silver shards
will not leave their mark?
