She Found Love in the Pages


Authority on Love

She took up a stool
at Fourteenth and Third
outside the chic singles' bar
where love was a curse
word. But when she pulled out
her fine linen pad, a stroke
of her pen proved she wasn’t half bad
at penning love poems on cue
for the masses. Her magical words
turned cynics askew, and sent
them out with new hope
to search for their matches.

  1. I love this poem and that a lot coming from the King of Romance (tongue in cheek). Loved this:

    to search for their matches.

    Excellent!
