Love Poems, 2.

It's Valentine's again
time to lay down the law.

  • no long-stemmed roses.
  • no garish birds of paradise or alien heliconias
  • no heart-shaped coffins for sicky-sweet cherry cordial chocolates
  • no pre-filled cards
  • a general ban on all things red and pink.
  • no fancy over-sauced restaurant meals
  • not a drop of cheap champagne
All I need is
a mountain
a river
a lifetime.

That's all.
