Love Poem

A friend recently shared with me a cartoon in which Shakespeare’s wife complains , “Another sonnet?!?!?!” as she reads a birthday card from her poet hubby. This poem is inspired by that cartoon. This is not about my wife. She loves me lots!!

Image result for shakespeare cartoons another sonnet?

Love Poem

I placed a few words
on a slip of paper,

slide them
beneath your pillow

where you hoard shadows,
where the sheets,

white and cold,
spring,

wrinkled as water
icey and thick.

I’m quite sure
you loved me once.
