How To Fall In Love - Poem by Wojciech D Kolesnik

you will have to put down some of your weapons,  
change the way you eat cake, have some if you're against it 
remove the helmet justifying thinking, drop your shield,
slip out of your armor, better yet get naked,
kiss a dolphin and mount him 
join the wildlife association, shoot the boyfriend if he doesn't want to 
run your naked body against the bark of a tree, let the ranger catch you 
refresh yourself between your legs, allow yourself the pleasure to fall in love 
freestyle from the highest tower, doesn't matter if he's younger 
shave him should you not like facial hair, father him if he's older,  
dress him in fireman's uniform, tell him how your little house
burned down to the ground 
why eat from soup kitchen counters when you can feast on skin and bone 
change your grazing habits, devour the luscious 
next love of your life may well be the cake in your mouth
