Love had a hernia,
& what a love affair
If you ignore the night nurse
from Nigeria, nurse
with the personality of gunpowder.
That’s when the horse of a different
color appeared smack in the middle
of senior English class with an ermine
white ‘67 Vette melting like a jasmine-
scented candle beneath a magnolia
bush in bloom.
In the name of love, love survived
a hernia to love again, & what
a love affair it’s been.
