@ 27.055 MHz: Ad Astra; To Dokken

He loves the intimate beauties of your soul;

your agile body, and nearly waist-length hair;

the supple softness of your bell-bottom jeans

and your unshod feet---sheathed in blue socks or bare.

Your love has made his once fractured life whole,

despite haters' prejudice that demeans,

despite their jackboots' dissonance of despair.

Not even new cycles' spewed information,

nor the most literate education,

can provide an adequate preparation

(much less an acceptible explanation)

of how you become his poems' inspiration---

love poems of exquisite delectation,

wherein you set stars in new constellation.
