LOVE WILL TEAR US APART, AGAIN
An aphoristic 'love' poem I put together a while ago called Love Songs has been selected for an anthology tied to the Poetry d'Amour Love Poetry Contest 2013. WA Poets Inc are behind the comp; the anthology is to be published by Mulla Mulla Press in Kalgoorlie. My thanks to the powers that be for selecting my work. I don't usually set out to write 'love' poems. What is a love poem anyway? The poem I penned looks at love from all angles. It's a poem predominantly about loss, healing, confusion, lust, sex, technology, hedonism and fatherhood. There's the odd bit on love too. It isn't Elizabeth Barrett Browning. It isn't Rick Astley.
