a cento of love
full of augmentation
isn’t what she said or wrote
          it was argumentation

but i am allowed to change
the argument to slap it in its
face before he walks out of the
cento of love forever or never

to be seen again
what’s so important about
the center of love are not the
fireworks nor the varying sounds

of the fireworks on the third or
the fourth of whatever month
of whatever country hospital
your dad isn’t breathing well in

inside of which whatever hospital
isn’t what she said either it’s just
MY center of love she argued as she
wrote the word over and over again

          with much gratitude to stephanie young
