Happy or Not, It’s Valentine’s Day

a poem

Happy Valentine’s Day to:
The marrieds and de-marrieds
The not-ready-yet-and-never-will-bes
The singles, celibates and stigmatized
The traumatized
The drama-frees and the drama-fulls
The sugar moms in the shopping malls
The desperates, the single dads
The actors for the dating app ads
The newly hatched, newly widowed, newly giving up
All of us are worthy
of love.
