Off With My Head

by Christos Polydorou

My lover
is hero,
is titan…
My lover’s
contribution to life
is tantamount to genius…

This must be
Candy cotton
the clouds…

Handpicked me!
Of all people!

Roared down
from the heavens
and cut my head off!

This must be love
because I have literally
lost my head.

This must be love
because I am running
around like a decapitated

chicken and my blood
is turning into love poems.

This must be love
because though I am a monster
now in love I want to show the whole wide world.
