Image for the poem love me like a poem

love me like a poem

‘Love Poems’ boldly engraved on the cover
of the book she left behind
the only thing she forgot
I opened it. the pages were blank

band of gold: ring of fire
burned like her kisses used to

in the garden, the wildflowers bloomed
they smelled like her
I trampled over them, heard their screams
watched them die under my boots

from my window, I see the cathedral
silver tones of the chimes – ‘Ave Maria’
all my blaspheming cries
begin with F

the stars spelled out her name
across the black tarmac where heaven hides
I took my deerhunter special
12 gauge, double barrel
shot them down, one by one

tell me again
how to write
love poems
