Should I Enter the Boat?
six friends and I were told
we have only one big chance
they say the storm will come
I have already memorized Pablo Neruda’s Sonnet XVII
in hopes that the next world will be
filled with a hidden secret love
yesterday’s love then will be irrevocably gone
a lost infancy remembered no more
but our new love will merely be
within our memory’s and imagination’s reach
One thought on “New Love”
Thanks for writing to the prompt!
