my favorite love poem
In honor of Lupercalia, aka Valentine's Day, here is my favorite love poem in the world:
I have no work today so instead I will sit here at my desk and work on my novel. Tonight I will spend the evening with my students at the homeless shelter. We'll eat pizza and I promised them we would spend tonight writing inappropriate love poems and crazy Valentines.
Last night I had a dream I heard familiar footsteps on my stairs. In the dream I got up and saw there were flowers on my doorstep. This morning, even though I knew the doorstep would be bare, I had to look.
