A little Friday night love poem

My love for you is not metaphorical
Elliott batTzedek

I love you like the moon loves the sun,
I love you like the desert loves the night,
love you like the honey loves the bear

love you like the tree loves the chair,
love you like the hand loves the sleight.
I love you like the shore loves the hurricane

love you like the signal loves the moving train.
I love you like Hollywood loves love at first sight,
love you like New Jersey loves New York

love you like the swan loved Bjork,
love you like the vampire is loved by the bite.
I love you like Peter loved the pumpkin shell

love you like gravity loves rappel,
love you like love poems love the trite.
I love you like a star loves the universe,

love you like the body loves the hearse.
I love you like Lutherans love uptight,
love you like yeshiva bochers love payis,

love you like Evangelicals love to save us,
love you like Baptists love to smite.
I love you, Love, like love loves love,

love you like the hawk loves the dove,
love you like every little thing is gonna be alright.
I love you like the habit loves the nun,

I love you like the moon loves the sun.
