Making Love, or Making Babies?


For love to be a success,
One must follow a sequence
Of preordained obligations.

Each one
Must be time stamped.

Coded into software.
Entered
On Facebook and Twitter.

The promises
Must be presented
In the swelling
Of genitals.

If dropped lashes
View toe curls as guilt.

Then express this disdain
To a therapist.
Be sure their furniture is made of
Leather.
(One cannot skip on price
When love is involved.)

For examples
Watch Hollywood.
And practice the dialogue
Used in romantic comedies.

Value the soul
Of a soul-mate.

Or pray to God
That sex
Is nothing more
Than making love.

Poem of the Day

poet Sidney Lanier

Once, at night, in the manor wood
My Love and I long silent stood,
Amazed that any heavens could
Decree to part us, bitterly repining.
My Love, in aimless love and grief,
