“An Honest Love Poem,” by Adam Gianforcaro

Apr 20th, 2011 | By | Category: Poetry

I hear these pop stars
are falling in love,
stumbling blind for
chic gowns
and ballroom brides,

some martini women
falling for Daddy’s timeshare
in Guatemala.
They hear the same love
songs on the radio that I hear.

Fine acoustics
and a fragile voice
drawing in teens, their
windows down, smoking
and spraying perfume.

I don’t listen. All of the
I’m-in-love bullshit.
I believe more ballads need to be
written about burritos.

Now that, my friend,
is relatable.
