A Love Poem Project part 1

it's difficult to divide lyn hekinian's works up into individual poems and still get the sensation of experiencing her journey.  here, i have taken two parts of her writing is an aid to memory and translated them into love poems for you.

_______________we should show the world some class
__________something to amuse, to break the men, and
_________shoot their democracies down
__________kisses move and move the heart
______________most darkened, plastered fogged up
__________in return for some new information
____________________two girls in dresses two retort
_____________________unfashionable and compassionate those
revive ordeals
____________________the price of demolishing is worth
___________________sorting these and those apart
____________________for principle sounds of his own heart
________love his quiet tongue a language
_______________subsided revealing music in a song
__________of birds so greatly misunderstood
binding men to diving thoughts of new feminine forms breaking
_________________for fire
____________and despair in failure to seduce
by way of good deeds each summer
________________something tangible to his kindness like an apple
