(Author’s Note: Originally titled It’s You, this poem was part of Reckless Imprudence. RI was a collection of poems written alongside my novel Puck and Ginger. Both may be read online via Scribd. Incidentally, Gustav Klimt’s The Kiss remains one of my favourite works of art from the Art Nouveau period.)
