Hearts and flowers

It’s magic
the way Romantics
save all love
for one day,
packed in a box of clichés,
chocolate roses

strawberry champagne,
Cupids and St. Valentine,
as if that
meant true love,
instead of glass cleaned
like magic.

Inspired by Weekly Tanka Poetry Challenge. I admit it’s not a tanka; I call it a “mirror Shadorma.”

true love
True love!
