Love Is A Stamp - Poem by Dilantha Gunawardana

Love is
Like a penny stamp to a philatelist
For oceans and valleys
Are conquered
To behold a queen on paper
Yet for the fellow man
She is a piece of wood pulp
Spit on and pasted on telegrams
For love is inimitable and rare
Found only by devoted collectors
Conquistadors of a destiny
Encapsulated in perforations of paper
With a queen at the center
