I wonder if I would write a love poem again
I probably will
I wonder if that's even what I want.
I wonder if I could spend some time
Writing not love poems,
Writing not love poems, not exactly,
Poems to the stranger in a club
Poems to the cute lab partner
Poems to the one-night stand
Poems of a more casual kind of love
A love that makes me smile as I wake in early morning light
A love that makes me gasp as the dusk turns to night
A love that is gone by noon.
A superficial love;
Concerned not with the person
But rather the idea
Of who they might be
And who I might be with them.
An idea that will not be explored;
Only imagined, happily and trivially.
I wonder who would be the subjects
Of my not love poems;
I'd love to meet them.
