Poetry Session: metric love (2015)

metric love
30/11/2015 11:56

love is a place;
with penguin classics
& late night tv

anime with subs,
lazy cats
& songs in japanese

love is a place;
with cheap flights
& distant seas

laughing lovers,
tickle fights
& clumsy hands

love is a place;
with sensitive skin
& impassioned breeze

wrapped in sheets,
twisted limbs
& tangled feet

love is a place;
with grazed knees
& an oak tree

love is a place;
with stadium love
& emily haines

– Emmy
