What about Love?

age, gender, sexuality
all you & they talk of

what are they? how old is she?

they’re what, 15 years apart?

that will never last
you will see

what is in an age, but numbers
what is in a person, but
a heart

dare i say it, ask
ok, whisper
what about love
what if they love one another?

love is a new born babe, an adorable cat meme,
transparent soap bubbles, the view from the window
of an aeroplane

what if it is love?
do you think before you love?

what a shame – fall first &reassess later

our heart has more sense than our prejudice
