Treasure Island

Robert Charles Howard

(26 DEC 1943 / Wyandotte MI)

A Many Splintered Thing


LOVE is:
   a dopamine trip
      Paris in the spring
         a really low tennis score.

LOVE is:
   erotic
      platonic
         gin and tonic.
            
LOVE is:
   requited
      unrequited
         or a little of both.

LOVE is:
   a baby's smile
      a ruined Huggie
         graduation day.

LOVE is:
   brotherly
      otherly
         smo therly.

LOVE is:
   the real deal
      a raw deal
         sweet and sorrow.

Whatever LOVE is(n't) ,
   without it - no us!

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
