Afterthought

Afterthought

Life is of the mind
but what is real
is not the same
as solidity

Is love more real
than the rose
the feeling
more acute
than the thorn ?

No ideas
but in things
though the idea
is a thing
in and of itself

just as the mind
is a location
a place of thought
and feeling

and where love
takes up
residence
