Enmity is Easier than Love

Enmity is easier than love –
until you lose the taste for it –

and find it easy to replace
with curiosity and humor

and bewilderment and awe,
which prod a law of wonder:

a sort of thunder in the heart
some label gratitude –

a mystic longitude and latitude
which rise like Delphic vapors

from below and float about,
around and down like sunlight

from above. Then you find
that nothing’s easier than love.
