I could live on love alone

Allen’s already spoken my heart-

love is the weight of our worlds-

but I would like to add-

love is not only the weight and the sole comfort

of our souls,

but the only nutrition,

the only color, the only heat 

that can fill our bones and bellies

to the brim with light, or tears,

starving us only in its absence.
