Friday 22nd January

This week’s poem is from Brian Bilston's brand new collection, Alexa, what is there to know about love?

Love in the Age of Google 


is love an abstract noun 

is love a verb 

is love actually on Netflix 

is love a word 


love is a temporary madness 

love is a hurricane 

love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs 

love is a losing game 


can love last forever 

can love break your heart 

can love2shop vouchers be used online 

can lovebites scar 


love can build a bridge 

love can set you free 

love can hurt ed sheeran 

love cannot heal me 


does love cure depression 

does love have an age 

does lovejoy marry charlotte 

does love always fade


love does not need an explanation 

love does not exist 

love doesn’t need a slogan 

love is all there is
