This Poem is Not for Lovers


this poem is not for lovers,


though it will harm not a one of them:

young and older hearts: be boring!


a titanic insight, a morning storm

thunderbolt that strikes you when you’re shaving


is the least of things love is.

i see no reason for anything less


than carefully, patiently, yes, critically

loving the vagaries unorthodoxly.


Minneapolis, 2007. Self-published in Clay Eyes.
