Spark Plug

The saddest people in the world

have given up on love.

You can see it in their faces,

read it in their body language,

having allowed the hope of love

to wither,

drain from their body,

from their blood—

dead flowers upon a stalk.


They are in need of quick transfusion,

love circulating

on a cellular level,

sparking engines of hope,

exciting once again

great turbines of love,

sending new energy,

new message to the brain,

the body, the being—

try again.
