Poem – A Love Poem for Anyone – John Tansey 

For you, the hapless peruser, 

who happens to thumb upon this page, 

along a dusty shelf of books. 

Was not haphazard at all; 

For the page found your thumb 

as it was fated to be, 

as the effect finds the cause 

and the cause finds you. 

the heart bleeding reader. 
If you would these words for you 

then will it so. 

for the subjective was never anyone 

but the objective was always you, 

the sensual stranger, 

the romanticizing, lusty lover 

who never turned my corner.
