L’amour est un verbe 

 

down comfort bed

bought for a spoiled 

four-legged friend

 

deli door help open

for a stranger, broken

with a heavy heart

 

potted orchid 

beautiful suggestion

of blooming affection

 

never-ending circle 

woven with death diamonds

ironically representing new life

 

skin pressed tight

soft breasts, beating hearts

love lasting all night

 

crying child 

showered with devotion

parents didn’t know they had

 

sincere kiss to the forehead 

after a tumble 

scrapes a knee

 

support

regardless of bad decisions

arguments, fights, collisions

 

family surrounded 

during the concluding moments 

of a life

 

embracing death

blindfold faith

easing ultimate fate 

 

I love you. 

the girl with the black eye cried 

again and again

 

after his profanity-laced tirade:

Love you too, Babe. 

a delayed response for the disobeyed
