Saint Valentine’s Day Poem

Time to tweak this bad-boy. Just wanted to bring it to mind and tell you I wrote it on Valentine’s Day after finishing a plate of baby-back ribs at Applebees, cold and alone on FEB 14. I asked the waitress for a piece of paper and pen because the poem sort of fell into my head almost fully formed. I wote it down in less than 5 minutes on the back of another table’s receipt, showed it to the waitress and I think her eyes glazed over for a quick sec.

I will republish the 2d draft in a bit.


Cut me to the bone

with your tongue

Break my heart

with your tortures

But my Love

when you turn your smile onto me

the pain and heartbreak

go away and

I recall why and know that

I love you
