CanPo Round-up 5: Milton Acorn

by ConduitCanada


If I said love that word

‘d recreate me as love;

said love you that breathe

‘d drop me trembly on

your breasts, your breath.


Love’s before you, before me;

nearest to god we know.

Utter his name truly then he

‘s possessor and law.

Listen, love, I say it.
