all love is a hypothesis–
a guess about untested elements
with powers to heal or wound.
the most violent reactions
often form the strongest bonds.
we pretend we have education
by pouring ourselves into things
and hoping they take our shape
or we take theirs. but we are truly mad.
we are mad with desire to create.
we want the instants
and concentrated doses and we
neglect the non-toxic for all ages.
