2010 November PAD Chapbook Challenge: Day 10

Some mornings, I'm able to get to the computer earlier than others. Today is one of those early bird days! Yay!

For today's prompt, write a love poem. Simple as that. Poets who've done the PAD challenges in the past know I always sneak this one in somewhere during the month. And if you're all anti-love poem, that's fine. Express your anti-love in a poem as well; it still counts toward this prompt.

Here's my attempt:

"Do you like what you see?"

O, yes!

I love that shirt
and how it looks on you
though I'd like it even more
if it were on the floor.

I can't explain why--
like describing the pleasures
of various fruits,
why try?

Instead,
I'll answer, "Yes!
Sweet baby, yes!
You intoxicate me like wine."
