The XYZs of Love - an art work by T Newfields
Xtraordinary how Xanadu
gets X-cised from X-cited hearts
Yet with less time
yabbering, yakking, 'n yanking
wouldn't our yearnings 4
you-know-what
be X-traneous?

Ah, not as long az
the yum-yums of yesterday persist
err yesirees ah yoni-yearning
hold sway

Yet if we're
Zany 'n Zealous enuf
perhaps we'd
Zoom into Zazzling Zest
instead of zombie into
zipless zit-faced melancholy

Without love
what R we?

Ah, the pimples ah perplexity . . .
