Hopeless Romantic

by Chris Butler

I write her love letters
without a signature,

while falling for her
on tendon bended knee

after tripping over
my stuttering words,

as I present flowers
to grim reapers,

sing love songs
with my one man band,

and offer rings
to quadriplegic mistresses,

by proposing engagements
for dates set by fate.

I’m a hopeless romantic
claiming to be a poet.
