Pick a petal
drop it with a wish
for fire
or a cooling.

Wrap a chocolate
in a ribbon
and think picasso nude.

Hold your breath
until your lungs burn
and pretend it is desire,
but be my valentine.

Sleep with teddymen
and angular women.
Dance arabesque
on bistro tables.

Never think of me
but be my valentine.

Hold your hands
so that I might come
between them.

Close your eyes.
I will be a hologram
Light as light
upon your lips.
Be my valentine.

Be my valentine
A paper cut heart
the texture of sin.
Be my valentine.

So much depends
upon your reply.
