Hotel Sensibilities

Ambition is carrying you away
Beyond my poor gentleness-
I hope it brings you something
Warmer than words-
A song from L. Cohen
Images by Marquez
And a lover stretched out
Under sunlit curtains-

I would have pretended
As long as you needed me to-
I'm an actor, you see
Well mannered and made to suffer-
Mostly son, or brother
Or tattered lover
Best new male romantic supporter
But never much for the final scene-

I'm afraid this morning
Of all the girls in all the cafes
Along Roncessvalles avenue-
Your shelter was too much for me
And my soul is cold now
Like a February night,
Spent organizing photos
For lack of company-
