Love's Danger And Honey

In your humour,

what lies ahead?

What lies ahead, she said.

It lies ahead of us

What is a head in these situations?

I counter.

So in love, they said

So in love?


Why not, they replied.

Why not love's danger and honey at the same time

I said to them what I told my mother

Boded black I said:

Skin me deep!

I realised that they too were afraid of it.

And I, so bold as to say why.

But never have I realised this before.

Because I cried was it?


But I didn't.

So what?

So care for us, they said.

Care for what?

Love's abominable stare.


For us.

Okay, I stared at them.

When do I get paid?

Wednesdays, they scowled.

I howled with pain.

They were onto me

And I was onto them.

So what did we do next?

Tune in for Friday's meal.
