spoke love, an ice rink first kiss

[some love lettering love for a rainy day bike]


First kiss: behind Memorial Ice Rink:

We stand next to a pile of Zamboni ice,

mittens stuffed into pockets so that

when our hands touch each others’ by accident,

we will feel knuckles and nails

instead of factory knit wool.

bench love

My vertebrae slips between slats in the wood,

and I love you salt-bleached,

the beach stuck to the bottoms of our heels.

The Love Lettering Project V: first kisses

The Love Lettering Project V: December 31, 2009

[first kisses]

For the fifth Love Lettering Project, I asked people I love to send me the locations of their first kisses, along with the season of this kiss and I wrote poems about these moments, turned them into small pieces of one-of-a-kind art and slipped them into envelopes marked ‘love.’

On the very last day of 2009, I delivered these love letters to the places of these original kisses -- behind ice rinks, movie theatres, basements, behind churches, porches, driveways, school playgrounds…

It was a glorious day…
