- What Matters
Lover. Hover. Shover
To challenge, to win, to fail, to hope for another
Is to hold love in highest regard.
Its test is loss, contradiction,
Pain great and hard.
‘Tis unlike a crush which has no noble hand
And leaves the heart a Hindenburg zep:
Too large and prone to fire’s demand.
Similarly dissimilar to addiction,
Which freezes mind without a word.
Inventing a cult of secretive lust
Glorifying cowardice obliviously absurd.
The latter to the puberty-stricken fool;
The former is the mind of a child.
But first and foremost is the breed of love
That makes heart tame and mild.
