all right

Occasionally adding corroborative details to add verisimilitude to otherwise bald and unconvincing,
but veridicous accounts
with careful attention, indefatigable assiduity, and nice discrimination.

St. Valentine’s Day

Valentine Schmalentine

Violets are violet
and roses were, originally, rose—
whence their respective names.
What passes for amorous
poetry these days, too often, is prose.
Enough of careless games.
