Patching the roof

After all, after all, after all these years
I'm on a doomed strut through the
Harlem Nocturne of you,
a you I used to think I knew but now I know
for sure I'll never penetrate the avalanche of
your smile, your pout, your universe.
I'm always patching the roof
after the bitter water leaks in.
