  • Love has shown up at my door, possessions in bin bags, dressed as a clown.

    Love has been around my block in metal rollerskates.

    Love has followed me down the road at midnight, too poor.

    Love has brought his brother before.

    Sent me songs at midnight. Stayed out late, not come home.

    Made me laugh, despite myself.

    It is what it is. Does what it wants. Love gets around.
