Love Poem for Thanksgiving

by Nicholas Andrea

Love is the most maddening thing in the universe
for now that I’m full of it, I have
no fucking clue what to do
for my ambition has been hijacked by a thief
who grabbed it and flew;

Service,
see, is not doing
for it comes from being
’cause being is what happens when doing and intuition start agreeing
and there’s no space for me-ing
because there doesn’t need to be-ing;

but, I doth protest
it makes no sense
it just makes no fucking sense
in my defense!

Jesus, you are nutty whackjob, pal
what the fuck’s a matter with you, how
do you give the most irrational thing
Don’t you know everything good in life is earned, not received???

Silence, he says nothing

and I just sit, seeing
nothing to do
nowhere to go
nothing to realize nor attain, I am
in disbelief, so

I watch the candle’s flame before me dancing
and I learn how I am to be living;

That is all, this Thanksgiving.
