You Say You Love Me

You say you love me,
Your easy words
If I overlook the points,
Take away the darts—
Mine is a loving heart,
Not a chart
To be hung
And struck for tally,
From loft to alley—
Words can be arrows
I guess is what
I want to say,
And yours are not Cupid’s:
He died with dolls
And other myths—
Sits at the bottom of the sea
Talking to Davy Jones
Those shipwrecked Movie Trailers
You still play—
Put down your harpoon,
Come to the surface soon
Hands empty, naked,
Ready for some real sun…

You Say You Love Me
