In step

Time, so they say,
always marches on

its cadence, precise
as any honor guard

Mostly.

Time is sometimes
less a rhythm, more
a tuning of a ukulele
MY
dog DOG

has

HAS fleas.
fleas.

My
dog
has
fleas

Time sometimes
stumbles, but always
finishes the parade

Ponder on this, but don’t linger (Love is… #81)

Love

when done very well
is a curious form of
masochistic
self-expression,
self-inflicted
manic depression, a
hormonally-glitched,
pseudo-exasperation

But

When not done all that
well love is plainly,
simply boring as hell
