It’s Cupid Stupid - Febd. 14, 2024

walked down to the creek

and sat on the bridge yesterday

to write a Valentine’s Day poem


waterfalls are happy sounds

but not mixed with constant

“what’re you writing about?”


which left me with interrupted thoughts

lame lyrics and wanting to say

it’s about Cupid stupid


luckily the stream didn’t stop

to chat and the afternoon began

to tilt in my silent favor


after a while   I realized once again

that words can only dress like love

can never mimic the feeling


love needs the performance of two

kind of like water needs a mouth

and both to fall into each other’s arms


and forget that thirst

was ever a word
