Treasure Island

Guillermo Veloso

(September 25 1962 / New York City)

A Relativity of Love


Can Love be relative to the speed of the heart?
Can one lover move at the speed of light while another
Perceives a different world?
Love bends space and time
A friction pushes us apart then together on our orbits around the sun
We enter rips in time and emerge together
Young and moist as newborn stars
Kisses bend, expand and contract
Lovers spin, dance and explode
Loves at critical mass
Black hole where nothing radiates
Love cannot escape
And poems dance on the event horizon

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
