Years, Miles (1999) For Aung San Suu Kyi by Wilda Morris how many years can you love across miles across borders with visas denied letters censored tapped phone lines crackling? how many nights do you toss alone in your bed yearning for the hand which once touched your cheek for the warmth of his body next to yours? how many mornings do you awaken from dreams drenched in sweat and smiles only to discover he is not there after all? how many meals do you eat not tasting mouth hungering only for his mouth eyes devouring his photo on the wall? how do you grieve when hes buried half a world away and you cannot go unless into exile another kind of burial your own?
