Poem For My Love

I love the simplicity of this poem, the grandiose sentiment it contains.
Poem For My Love - June Jordan
How do we come to be here next to each other   
in the night
Where are the stars that show us to our love   
Outside the leaves flame usual in darkness   
and the rain
falls cool and blessed on the holy flesh   
the black men waiting on the corner for   
a womanly mirage
I am amazed by peace
It is this possibility of you
and breathing in the quiet air
