Image for the poem Give me something to look forward to  

Give me something to look forward to  

namely, Poetry    
       
reverence and romance it;      
take your time—      
  it’s not a magazine of bullets        
  diving from an AK-47;        
or, a lonely one-nightly-stand        
worthy of flippant responses        
       
More importantly      
  wash its face—      
  comb its hair, brush its teeth      
dress it appropriately;      
don’t serve it half-baked—      
       
give me poetry      
  worthy of reading
