They were hydrogen.

He was nucleus

stable, self-contained,

she was electron

buzzing-surround

caught by attraction

held firmly in place

unable to split.

(Old one from 1982)

.

Love poems sound corny like

old songs on radios,

black and white movies

starring bad actors,

valentine flowers

and sugar too sweet.

What language is there

for ethereal chemistry?

We need some math:

say it with algebra!

Problems of love

could be solved with equations,

but no – we have words

that don’t know where to start

and don’t know when to quit

and never say quite

what we wanted them to.

There, I tried again.

They say passion

is addictive

chemistry

inside our brains

but I know

this isn’t true

for I can quit

at any time.

But my muse

is a pusher

dropping him

into my dreams

and I just like the flavor

and would gladly

wear the patch

that bears his name.

You are nucleus

stable, self-contained,

I am electron

buzzing-surround

caught by attraction

held firmly in orbit

unable to split.
