'For Love': A Poem by Stuart Buck


give me the sound of a thousand hearts beating

s t a g g e r r e d to make one thrum of knowledge

of life

oh how i would love to melt you down

like darkest chocolate, would you flow between my tongue

and the part of me that has no name

to mingle with spit and soul

hold me until the light comes once more
