Love Matters

like criminals
line up –
a visceral backdrop

Another vies
to take their place,
a critical eye
and no-nonsense

questions motivations
highlights the faults
in righteous accusations,
bends the arrow of blame
reassigning guilt

the jilted,
now pathetic,
craves absolution,
starves for appreciation

awakens to
sickening revelation
that sex alone
cannot sustain

too late
the value
in personal
