What is Love?

Dialogue Poem Set 3.5: On Loveashen cloak

Ashen Cloak expanded:

***

What is love?

But a play within a play:

The first is full of song, hearty,

Of epic-cure an’ comedy;

And the other – in hindsight is

Hangover’d much

With heart break bitter,

With Life ache puking

Applause from the sick,

Soap opera, such

Tragic irony.
