Spell Check

You don't need spell check

to know Love's

a four-letter word

linguists can't argue

lovers might

the metaphor's tame

but nowhere near tamed

no science

just subtle aspects

of configured stars


of latent forces

neither is the blunt


word synonymous

Love's neither shorthand

nor icon

nor tailored to fit

tethered and tagged, you

can't save Love,

upload it to Cloud

it plucks the moment's

ripe apple

and plants next year's crop

prodigal spirit,

for some that

goes without saying

others sustain the


with coin of far realms
