Unless love

We could pretend
love exists
and that we are in love
and do the things
those who are in love

like feed each other spoonfuls of ice cream
take walks on rainy park trails
say we missed each other
when we were apart
and kiss and touch
and fuck

but we would never say making love
because what we do then
is too violent
and selfish
to be love

is like that

unless love
is violent and selfish
and frightening like that
