A presenting of love lyrics, poems, and drawings
drawn from the life of the author, his grandmother, his dog
and the lives of Orpheus, Saint Valentine
and Mrs. Cooper of Cheadle Hulme.
The bitter, the sweet, the long and the short shrift:
how not to succeed in dancing advancing
at the school discoteque.

Love cuts
love's very sharp
a harpoon through an easy chair
just wait until the bees come home
and find you just relaxing there.
