Love Wakes Up


love wakes up

love wakes up

like a bowling ball pitched

through the front window


of that old house where

your sadness used to live

rattling the old neighbors


into their bathrobes

standing on the front porch

they stare sharp across their brown yards

not knowing what to do


(from my book, Love Does Stuff, Amber Lodge Press)
