love above all

by Philip F De Pinto

above all will
live as long
as love will live

to prove that love
is not merely a word

murky at best

so we've heard
purveyors say
who are not themselves practitioners
who will live as long
as they can prove wrong
we the partakers of such
who live neither to prove nor clarify


is no mere response to laying down of arms
but is a calling to arms
unconditional and enfolding

the singular holding
the other to plurality
and what better reaping

than arms sowed in each others keeping
