Verse for March 30, 2010

you know
if you want

to nourish me,

then my advice
is this

the way to say
I love you

is not a whisper
in the ear

say it directly
into my mouth

then seal it
with a kiss

and watch me
swallow it whole

but you
should know

once you
feed me love

I will only ask
for more


my heart
is a box
of plagues

a barbed assortment
of impossible
and unrequited

so much so
that I never
let it out
of my sight

so that
no one is
accidentally afflicted
with insatiable yearning
