And if I were to say...


Anna Lea Merritt (American-born artist active in England, 1844-1930) Portrait of a Woman


syntax   
by Maureen N. McLane 

and if
I were to say

I love you and
I do love you

and I say it
now and again

and again
would you say

parataxis
would you see

the world revolves
anew

its axis
you
