To search for love is fruitless –
we examine each potential lover
with predatory eye. Is this the one?
But that’s not how life operates.
Love conquers unaware,
its significance at first unnoticed.
Love creeps like cat, belly to ground,
all senses alert for the moment
propitious for the pounce.
Then wham! Bam! Alakazam!
With blinding flash the hunt is over,
love’s quest for a victim won.
