Most Poems Have Burrs

Most poems have burrs
some that fall off and
stick to us

some poems have burrs
like stellate stars
that penetrate the heart
and warm the liver

and some have burrs
that are scary or cold
and kind of make you shiver

this poem has a burr too
I'm totally in Love with You
and I really am... it's true.

I hope that doesn't
give you the flu.

thnx for the comments. Im trying to decide whether or not to take my netbook on my trip.
Maybe I need a break, but you know how addicting writing can be. I'm going to miss my blog and cyber friends :(
