Best Poem of Allen Blue

Not About Love

I have nothing new to write.
From too many recastings
The material has grown brittle.
It’s best to find another
And avoid these clumsy hands –
I will not write about love.

I will not write about a heart that groans
Against tense lines mooring it to a dock;
I will not write about how effortlessly
The straps slid from your moonlit shoulders;
I will not write about what moved your hands
To protect my wrists from me;
I will not write about why I lower my head
To kiss those hands rising when you breathe;
I will not rewrite words already written ...
