Poetry reading: TRUE LOVE

[Performed at #offstageamsterdam at Vondelbunker, 15.09.2018]

It all began on the night I came back Spotted one in the alley Thought its bright pink Had a pretty glow In the dark. Then I met one more And another; True Love spread All over town I would photograph Each one With my heart. Starting to look for it Proved to be The wrong habit; As it is written on the wall That is when I would least find it -- And once I had forgotten Out of nowhere Someone out there Made certain It was now time To be Reminded. True Love is everywhere True Love comes In all shapes and sizes Eternalized In the most symbolic places On that brick On a trash At times spelled backwards Others With a message I would cogitate on Long after. The last one Was that kind Its sense Divine; It read Love True And in my heart of hearts I knew; What makes Love true Is the way I love you.
