Love Poem Relinquishing the Articulate VeneerFritz Ward
Dear Fill In My Blanks, my heart is a hotel room overlooking an alley bright with rain: a metal pull-chain, an empty socket, light blue curtains singed with the approximation of a human soul. The truth is this is not the truth I counted on. These fingers were not the fingers I counted on. The mattress in the corner is spare and empty. Underneath, I’ve hidden a book of matches and two flammable confessions. One where the grim silk grows red into the merchandise of love. One where everything I say smolders.
