Time for another edition of The Daily Poet, my random series of poems that come out on anything but a daily basis.
I’ve been writing late lately, until 4 AM in the morning or so after watching old black and white movies on cable.
Maybe it’s contributing to the insoluble nature of my poems, but I think it’s also helping me concentrate and hopefully create some unique connections in the silent spaces.
Well, without further delay, enjoy this poem for another day.
Putting a Price on Love
Let’s take account
the value of this thing
the overall net worth
based on supply and demand.
How much is love
selling on the singles market
when so many are seeking
what others are just giving away.
It’s almost impossible to estimate
the devaluation and depletion
of legitimate suppliers
due to counterfeit reproductions.
Maybe that’s why you can’t
put a price on love
and why its trade-in cost
is based on a bartering system,
What you’re willing to give and give up.
Thanks forever for reading, and as always, feel free to comment or cut up.
