Treasure Island

Ruth Walters

(London, U.K.)

I'm not in love……with love.


I'm really not opposed to love
but bored by the odes to love
stressed more by the test of love
and harried by the thoughts of love
for though love makes the world revolve
and brings us all together
there's none so boring or so dull
as other folks love letters.

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
