Still Crazy in Love

by Lito Tejada-Flores, 80 pages, $9.95 softbound

Still Crazy in Love spans the crazy romantic adventure of four decades living with Linde Waidhofer. An adventure that hasn't stopped, maybe never will.

 

No longer raining, no longer even night,

But not yet day, dawn light spreading

Across the sky, trying for a rosy pink.

Way off west, at cloud cluttered horizon,

The full moon falls off the edge of the sky

Slipping down behind shadow peaks

The moon path rolled up and put away

Our lake now waiting for its share of color

Our lake? Why not? Our sky. Our moon.

Our memories of other moons, memories

Of other memories falling off the edges

Of other skies, other years, other lovers

Also called Lito and Linde, with their own

Memories of other Litos and Lindes,

Memories tumbled into the dusty closet

Beneath the edge of the sky. How many?

How many years ago did we meet?

How many wake-up kisses, cups of coffee?

Questions without answers, too many

To count, no need to count, no time

To spend with memories, today is waiting

And we're still here, still together,

Still looking for beauty, still finding it,

Still crazy in love.
