LOVE When Stacked


Venus of Urbino, by Titian (image from Wikimedia Commons)

LOVE spelled in a single line, the letters stretch out
like Venus of Urbino lounging without a worry
of catching a chill from evening air
whispering through the opened window.
Also, she doesn’t look worried about you seeing her naked.
Her enticing eyes seem to show that she’s enjoying it.
If you were to visit her, you wouldn’t have to pick flowers,
since she’s clutching her own bouquet.
Although your presence would surely awaken the dog,
so be prepared to pet it before you shoo it out of the room.
Then there’s the awkward company of the two ladies
in the background, but Venus might shoo them out of the room
if you were to climb onto her bed.

when stacked,
the letters
do not invite you in,
because they are
quite content
by themselves.
With a person on top,
another on the bottom.
Active in the sharing of love:
embracing and kissing.
Possibly more,
as suggested by the
playfully tilted O.

  2. Art inspires my writing, too. And of course the Love park installation caught my eye. I live just outside Philadelphia! Pleasure to follow along, August.
