Volume II, Issue I Spring 2003


For Orion

Love is a war,
Geometric design And everything after it
Is just a big
A consolation card,
A Deepest Sympathy note
With flowers,
If you're lucky.
And I knew,
When I climbed out of his car,
I'll call you
Was only a nicety set there between us
As a kindness from God,
Just a karmic reimbursement,
For another letdown by my own stupidity.
