Love Poem

Love Poem
by Richard Brautigan

It’s so nice
to wake up in the morning
all alone
and not have to tell somebody
you love them
when you don’t love them
any more.

  4. That’s a great poem. I ran across this one today and it reminded me of you:

    Riding the A
    by May Swenson

    I ride
    the “A” train
    and feel
    like a ball-
    bearing in a roller skate.
    I have on a gray
    coat. The hollow
    of the car
    is gray.
    My face
    a negative in the slate
    I sit
    in a lit
    corridor that races
    through a dark
    one. Strok-
    ing steel,
    what a smooth rasp—it feels
    like the newest of knives
    a long
    black crusty loaf
    from West 4th to 168th.
    and rails
    in their prime
    make love in a glide
    of slickness
    and friction.
    It is an elation
    I wish to pro-
    The station
    is reached
    too soon.
