The Old Sofa of Valentine’s Day

It’s Valentine’s Day! I hope and pray you all feel loved. Here’s a quick piece in honor of the day and the feeling(s) I hope you all possess.


 

Love

It needs
to settle

upon you
as a heavy

woman eases
into an old

sofa, easy,
slowly,

then with
a final

flop it falls,
your

bones creek
against

its warm
heft

and, try
as it might,

it can never
rise

from the soft
spot you’ve

allowed it
to occupy.
