Pic-ah-nic bas-ket! (Love is… #161)

fried chicken

you’re never
certain –

follow the rules
of etiquette…

…or just dive in,
use your fingers

finger-lickin’

yummy, messy
heart-healthy
artery clogging
oh-so-tasty

Love is
fried chicken

but when all is
said and done
just what do
you do with the
gnawed on
bones?

D-M-V (Love is… #30)

Love is a driver’s license photo

You know who the person in
the picture is – sort of, maybe

you think it is you – your glazed
eye, mug-shot provenance
makes even you double-check

triple-check yourself in the
mirror the morning after

facial expression defying
logical description;
contorted hybrid of happiness
and electrocution-by-chair

It was no innocuous clerk
that issued you this credential,
telling you with mock-courtesy to
have a good day, thank you

you walk away from the counter
new credential proof of who/what,
there are no retakes here

approval from the Department of
Misanthropic vehicles
