Idiot Love - Part One

Idiot Love
is as deep as a well
that is fed by
the sulferous rivers of Hell.

Its object is clear,
and its prospects are bad -
but rejection
does not make an idiot mad.

He just falls into step
with all idiots wronged:
he stops taking baths,
and he starts writing songs.

He gets gamey and gaunt.
He looks awfully depressed,
but the one he desires
is never impressed.

I've felt a tempest
rise out of a teapot,
and the razor-sharp talons
of world-renowned doves,

but I cannot believe
the incredible speed
with which idiots
fall in love.

This sounds a dozen years old.
