I wrote on the wall COWARD SHOES
COWARD SHOES
COWARD SHOES
just so
just so people would know the absurdity of life

I stepped in the snow to write LOVE
not for anyone in particular
but for the idea itself.
And the next day I saw
someone had written before it NO 1
just like
just like I hadn’t intended

But we must know the absurdity of all that is love
We must know it in the same way we know
that the words we use don’t mean the same to them
