blueprint

i have to plan for love.

whether i want to marry
where i want to live
what books i want for gifts
what if i want a millionaire?

i have to plan

for love to come for me
in a smile and a song
in a cup of coffee and a kiss
in an email, a text or a postcard.

i have to

plan for love in advance.
what poetry will i read to you?
which crappy show will we hate?
will we argue about politics?

i have to plan
for the love i want

but love it seems
has no plans for me.
