Love Potion #49


no hocus-pocus witchcraft
simple alchemy sprinkled
with matchmaking acumen

gauging their interests
(he: her supple skin, she: his furry chin)
observing their traits
(tender hearted, full of joy)

Cupid gets to work

sweetness to balance acidity
juices poured into the dry places
oil where things get stuck

He sweeps her off her feet
once again.

P. Wanken
