Poem: How Do You Make Love? 

Give up pictures. Give up the perfect
props you’ve garnered. Give up
kisses. Give up men and women,
disappointment. Give up knowledge.
Give up sleep. Give up respectability.
All will manage without you. Give away
food and money, your house, your clothes.
Pity those who carry the camel’s burden.
They are not free. Keep breathing.
Love every wounded child you see.
