Love Prayer

Let no one come between you and your dream.
   Never be warm to those who’d see you fleeced.
You were not born to cure low self-esteem.
   Settle for sixty-sixty at the least.
Avoid all those who fetishize their rage
   Or use your body as a carnal toy
Or see your wildness and construct a cage
   Or promise silk but give you corduroy.
May you be keen enough to spot a faker
   And wise enough to know desire from need.
If you must give, find one who’s not a taker.
   Love is a garden that four hands must weed.
      God keep you safe, and free from yoke or branding,
      And always one thought past Love’s understanding.
