The Perfect Confidant

Who is the perfect confidant?
Someone who knows when to propose

a soft détente – who undergoes
with you those journeys of the heart

for which you think you yearn
without exactly taking part? Somebody

who has such a preternaturally fine
assignment of wise sensibilities that he

or she can tease you into seeing
more than you’d been able

quite to see before?

But when the day grows late,
I think I’d rather have a playmate.
