Is Love Impotent? – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

#2022 November PAD Chapbook Challenge

Day 29 29.11.22

Prompt: Write a poem about truth.

Is Love Impotent? 

That beautiful Jew down in Palestine
said to that dullard Pilate,
who had never taken flight in his life,
truth is how you live by the measure of love,
an iteration for sure, yes,
and how hard could that be,
to simply love as you love ,
can this never be done,
is love impotent?

  2. Pilate loved Salome’s dancing so much that he gave her John the Baptist’s head on a platter.


  3. I love say that genuine love is omnipotent.
