Love poem: Yo-yo love


As you know ours is a

yo-yo love

we are up and down

and in an out

Imperial and Butterfly

rotational energy

held together by

thin twisted twine

we are equal parts

Walk-the-dog and


but now I am made to Sleep

and before I awake am sent


over hill and dale

meadow and mountain

brook and bay

you hither and me yon

and once back in your hand

peeled polish and soiled palm

from digging for something new

I will take a moment to remember

our ups and ins and loops

toward and not away

because what I discovered

during my reverse orbit

of our lives is that

our string is about to unravel
