“It’s so easy to fall in love,
It’s so easy to fall in love,
it’s so easy.”

………………—Buddy Holly

The Buddy Holly Poem

It’s so easy
when you realize
that all the squirrels
on the shingled rooftops
of Milwaukee
are Buddha
that all the trees shake green
in the wind
that the moon is you

that the whole of every note
is individual and one
that love is free
every day
on the blue earth
