#tbt – Where’s the love? – a poem from 2002

Where's the love? (2002)

Where’s the love?


A lace slip shows under a georgette dress.


He kissed you asking for more.

He promised Paris and Singapore,

but all you’ve gotten are a dozen unanswered messages.

He left for the weekend to think.

What do you suppose he thought about?

Will he call?


He lost his cell phone somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean.

Do you think it’s a sign?


You go out of your way to show your love,

but you’re not even sure of the sincerity of your affection.

You buy him things.

He buys you things.

That’s important.


There’s a Polaroid on his dresser of your magenta lace bra hanging on his yellow lamp.
