Love Poem by Donald Hall

In the middle of deadlines and aching feet, new books and milk tea named African Sunrise.

Love Poem
Donald Hall

When you fall in love,
you jockey your horse
into the flaming barn.

You hire a cabin
on the shiny Titanic.
You tease the black bear.

Reading the Monitor,
you scan the obituaries
looking for your name.
