I think about how love should be

and where we could find it

in a busy street corner

or at the next coffee shop

in the house of  a strange aunt

or while waiting at the bus stop

maybe on a beach vacation

or at the railway station

at the wedding of a loved one

on an outing with your friends

oh the prospects don’t end

but with our changing times

waiting is a bit of a crime

so we kill all those chances

with one swipe of our hand

moving from date to date

like a rockstar from a band?

while very few leave it to fate

for others there is tinder

and for a more specific kind

lo and behold ‘grindr’

so many of them out there

our little love finders

this 21st century love

with its gentle reminders

finders aren’t keepers,

swiped left weepers.
