you might think
by my gruff
exterior and
general disdain
for the niceties
of the civilized
that i would be
disinterested
if not outright
incapable
of falling in love
deeply enough
to do something
about it

but wrong you
would be,
my assuming
friend,
so wrong,
so wrong,
so wrong
indeed

i’ve not only
been in love
but been
a fool in love,
a besotted
bewitched
and bewildered
fool with
heart-sleeves
and dreams
of picket fences
and babies
and maybe
even a real job

yes, i’ve been
in love
or, at least,
the idea of it

and i never felt
more alive
