[ Lines Composed on a Napkin for a Stranger at The Alcove in Los Feliz ]

Aristotle says that to be
alone a man must either be
an animal or a god.

There is a third alternative
missing from this
equation: a woman
eating dessert in an alcove

Empress of ice cream,
crying diamond tears
over crummy cakes.

Or else: a poet
who is often both
at the same time.

for Fredrich Nietzsche
