Edge Poems - #3

"The History of Love"

by Junior High homebase teacher Bonnie Sparling.

The History of Love
A grammar book for you and I
Cultivating the mind of love
in relation
Everyday sacred
Joy school
Someone like you
not quite what I was planning
Bad boy
Surviving the breakup
At issue
Looking back on the end of the world
Tender at the bone
I Thought it was just me (but it isn't)
Nothing I see means anything
The power of kindness
so hard to say
What have you lost?
moment of silence
sailing alone around the room
No condition is permanent
plain and simple
Becoming whole
up a road slowly
Becoming myself
Durable goods
Born to ROCK
