Overdue Love Letter


Minus the saliva on paper

The hesitant comma

Barely smeared


Impatient still

Signed and dated



I offer every swerve

Soft wrist and stiff neck



This is my wet black ink

      • …have you seen this before? I know of no better definition. This is not the full section on the topic.

        “Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.”

        (1 Corinthians 13:4-8 ESV)
