i dare you

i dare you

i dare you to love

to love you to love me

to love love and to

stand in love

bare armed openpalmed

bloodhearted

i dare you

to write love poems to yourself

write love poems to me

to be that lovepoem

and stand on the footpath

at the train station and give

the lovepoem of

yourself to the peakhour

commuters every bleakday

morning

i dare you

to dare me

to love you to love me to be

that lovepoem to myself to you

to those fucking Collins Street 5 pm

commuters. God knows they need it.
