Cupid’s Treasure (Y7E28)

Broken is the connection
I have with love
it is a door to door salesman
that knew from my front lawn
I had nothing to offer
so it parted ways
before even learning how to say my name
and now I have too many subscriptions
for magazines full of glossed over promises
and nothing fulfilling
but piling up on my front porch
baggage, with cracked wheels and broken zippers
and no salesman wants a sale
with too many stipulations
so I watch love
run passed my driveway
and I continue to try finish the morning crossword
but forever stuck on a word
five letters across, second letter an E
meaning something that constantly beats, Cupid’s treasure
