Notions 2: Love, as Elemental

of all the gifts given

in silence, love

proves most mutable

perhaps love is water

those who ascribe to it fire

have to own, love takes

air, dizzyingly

but say

love is earth

both clay and vessel

made and shattered

ground down to powder


by water, air and fire

and its own sweet

irrepressible, holy
