"Love Formula" And Other Poems

Updated on March 25, 2017

One formula for love

Source

Love Formula


Begin with two days of conversation

Add three cups of shared coffee

Mix in the illusion of safety

Sprinkle luck over the remains

Stir vigorously for fun

Place in the human oven (heart)

Bake for a week, or longer

Let cool and wait for results

May need repeating

Perfection is not the aim

Combine a love song for additional sweetness


I've been hungry for years

Love At The Grocery Store


Nervous hands collide

over apples, oranges, and all that is

fruitful

until stammers or even words

emerge, questions

to pave what road

they must eat along.

Tyson


He is compared, albeit affectionately,

to Jim Morrison: young, tortured,

transferring addictions, shuffling around words,

scraping for permanence, praying for a way

out of his mind.

Safety Unpacked


At 23

he is aware

of the box he lives

in. The cool

observer--welcoming,

however distant--he fears

loving, being loved, irrationally

surrendering to unconditional love,

and, of course, that he'll

stay in his box,

perfectly safe,

perfectly untouched,

completely alone.

Do Not Tell Me


Please

do not

tell me about her, or

about your misguided

days in Michigan or Tampa

or Europe

or even here, in this

hellhole, an odorous

and awful pit that sucks

individuals of all humanity, ambition,

and even love, the

rarest of positions, the only one

able to cure your misfortune.
