This Business of Loving

This business of loving – the squeezing
and pushing and teasing and shoving –
the nestling and nuzzling, the pinches
and jabs in the belly, the butt and the arm:

the rampant solicitous charm all bestowed
like a truckload of coal in the summer
to somewhere that didn’t need heat. Your
love, my ecstatic confrère, has me beat.
