“on the hottest of days

lay down on likewedid the grass

and listen to likewedid poetry

with me:

 

don’t get up and I won’t either

 

there is a sky as blue as gas rings

as cartoon dolphins

which is invisible to us

 

we are busy silently listening

 

your eyelids are full of happy gold

my eyelids are full of sad gold” –

Description

Love is transcendent and love is everyday, found equally in a remembered tune, on the seashore or in a cup of tea. Often awkward, never perfect, romantic relationships have been a key subject for poets for centuries.

In The Emma Press Anthology of Love, fifty-six poets speak to what love means to them right here, right now, and that familiar four-letter word takes on a world of meanings. Love is transcendent and love is everyday, found equally in steamy texts and shopping lists, and the only reliable thing about it is that it’s never where you expected to find it.

Building on the success of 2015’s Mildly Erotic Verse, this book explores the diversity of modern romance. Often awkward, never perfect, romantic encounters and relationships are rooted in our own contemporary world of Tinder, Twitter and TV dinners. But they are also part of an enduring tradition: the cornerstone of our common humanity. In this book, fifty-six fresh, diverse and original voices speak to what love means right here, right now, bridging the gap between Hollywood imagery and modern lived experience.
