Love (Yet Another Poem)


Seemingly necessary
From the puritan to the erotic
Kiss to the bliss

And stamped by adhesives
– Palms, shoulders and lips –
Even held and rocked like a cradle
And scribbled on some post-it notes
Sticky till everlast

And that necessity
Which programs to a compulsion
Yields fiber that is drift-proof
Blind and gullible

And lithifies to
A bedrock.
