Making Love...with nothing but the touching...



  • Write a love poem. Romantic or more general types of love. Or…
  • Write an anti-love poem. Some folks just don’t like love poems of any type, so have at it.


At the kitchen table
Scattered with newspaper
And homework
Or breakfast remains
Where the sun pools
Gold in summer
Or daylight falls
Gray in November
Across the chatter
Of little ones
Above life’s spilled milk
Between ‘don’t talk with your mouth full’
And ‘stay sitting until you are finished’
We have made love
With nothing
But the touching
Of eyes
