The Instigator 

Suave and smooth in his suit
a shining beauty, he commands the room
holds court, dispenses approbation
withholds affection, sure and neat

While the sun is settling into still
he will decide the determination of love
a force in motion and that
which requires great patience

On the street of a soundless night
he is regarded through
suburban glass and fence
as one who is worth crying for

Through the gates of time
the voices raised
will call for attention:
agitation comes to fruition

His love is that of moment
and curiosity, footsteps
that find resolution through
paths of discovery

Coming home daily
with moss covered feet
is a ritual considered lovely,
most necessary, and sweet
