The Face of True Love

She was in two minds.
I removed one of them.

She gave me her heart.
A messy procedure.

I was all ears when she said
She only had eyes for me.

But I wanted the entirety
Of that beautiful face.

So I cut off my nose
To spite mine.

And to this day
Shoulder the blame.

    Love this one. Reminds me of Adrian Henri’s ‘Song for a Beautiful Girl Petrol pump Attendant on the Motorway’

    I wanted your soft verges
    But you gave me the hard shoulder

    Which inspired mine that predates the mobile


    I thought I heard the telephone
    But all I got was the dialling tone.
