a story on repeat

they sit
holding hands
sharing
secret smiles

is there anything
at all
more insipid
than young love

better have
a first aid kit
handy
young fools

the tenuous ache
sits
ever patient
on the flipside of beauty

i have to pull over
as sobs overtake me
it seems
i have read this work before
