A Crumpled Valentine

Free Verse ReVolution

Sorry.

I’m terrible,
honestly, at following
convention;

my emotions are
all Tetris blocks,
clusterfuck of
awkward shapes filling up
to the top of my capacity to

process what we are

as outsiders preempt us
during
last-ditch attempts to
call the shots.

But I want to
return the sentiment
you show me, proving I don’t
have to accept
loneliness to
have my bearings;

with you,
it’s not so embarrassing to
admit I’m lost deep
in thought.

Here. I bought
this card for you at the
corner. I’m too poor to buy
more than pasta
and rice, let
alone roses.

It got a bit bent
out of shape
on the way to you,

but it will
always bear my
hand-chosen brand of
awkward
devotion.

I love you
with all my
crumpled heart, as you
unfold it

in slow motion.
