Love in the Time of Paranoia

If love is for real
and not just a word
then show me.
I know you’re frightened.
I am too. 
But that is the feeling
imperfect people
always have as they
row closer home.

    All frightened. All imperfect. All rowing.
    Sounds like community to me.

    Ah, perfect, I think. Though you know I am not sure of much of anything. Except this one thing, poets should keep making lines. Grateful for yours.

    Love and fear…now there’s a tension for sure. Rowing home…love the image.
