Love’s Self Deceptions… by B.Z. Niditch


Love’s Self Deceptions

When I journeyed
to Balbec searching
for wisdom
from Marcel Proust
to seek his grounds
for finding signs for love
heightened by the springs
of the countryside
far away other professors
      and student bodies
driven from the Eiffel Tower
cafes and tourist traps
                   to find his secret
of what will remain after us,
it wasn’t affairs
of business or sated times
which will collapse
it was in art
that you believed
and realizing it (like a holograph
                            on puffs of clouds)
was no longer deceived.
