how many words exist
for me to say I hate you
I love you I want you?
loathing and odium
adoration and affection
desire and lust but why
one and not the other?
is what I call green the
same green your eyes signal
to your brain? in Japanese
there is no word for green
it's all blue and in
Russian the word for
war is the same as
the word for peace and
only context clarifies
I lust to wage peace
on your blue leafed trees
