I Can’t Write Irony

“Write an ironic ‘I love you poem”

-Kim Addonizio, Ordinary Genius

 

 

You say you love me

It must be true

I hear it in apologies

See it in hunched shoulders

You beat yourself

A humble monk in worship

Penance for sins

To your goddess

The LORD does not call for punishment

But selflessness

But selflessness is the opposite

of how you love me
