Giant (to Luis)

I met a giant 
someone who I’d naturally
avoid like brussel sprouts
when at first spied
having I suppose before
tasted and disliked and
therefore learned to dodge
But this giant was
different he sauntered over
and calmly sat down
and talked about life
and love and intimacy
he indeed waxed poetic
and I sat mesmerized
This giant taught me
an age old lesson
Run towards your fears
and never away for
this giant admitted that
he too feared me
