No Gentle Thing by April Michelle Bratten

can be found in Amazon's #1 best-selling Women's anthology.
Love is no gentle thing--
it indicates from the sky,
prods at the deaf carnation of my mouth.
It bleeds into the shape
of one dead-dog cloud with white puffy tongue,
a limp but bold obstacle,
a flying tumor on the air.
