love juts out
and you walk right into it.
love comes and goes
love's a rose
first you smell the flower

love gives you chocolates
then love gives you the chop
it doesn't like to linger.
love shuts up shop
and shuts it on your finger

love leaves you in slices.

a harpoon through an easy chair
a comb of honey in your hair
just wait until the bees come home
and find you just relaxing ...
