Love acc. to Hoa Nguyen

Cold_creamI love this poem by Hoa Nguyen that I swiped (shamelessly!) from Chris Murray’s valentines day post over at the Tex Files

Love calls for Hades cold cream’
Love talks in picture code
          and Valentines

Let’s eat red for fun
                eat tragicomedies

Epic red-love
washes all Valentines
          and gets my shoes wet

Like worn addled Valentines saying
"Sorry about Janice"

Wording is important

(waver         to sway         quaver           wave)

Love descends for literal "Hell & back" theatrics

  1. Indeed, this is a wonderful piece. it travels right across the page, addin to the space of its dimension
    ‘Epic red-love
    washes all Valentines
    and gets my shoes wet’
    sentiment in what I like to think of, as the best sense of feeling refined and released. Best wishes
