Love Wakes Up

19 Aug

                  abandonedhouse

love wakes up


love wakes up

like a bowling ball pitched

through the front window

 

of that old house where

your sadness used to live

rattling the old neighbors

 

into their bathrobes

standing on the front porch

they stare sharp across their brown yards

not knowing what to do

 

(from my book, Love Does Stuff, Amber Lodge Press)
