accounting for love

spend your love on me
you say
but what does that really mean?

if i have eleven dollars and
fifty cents
that won’t buy much, will it?

if i use my credit card, say visa, or
american express
will it add interest to the offer?

can i mortgage my house
for you
and if so will that set my love in stone?

or maybe i should just take out
a loan
you know i’d get my knees broken for you, right?

spend you love on me
you say
but what i’d rather do is present it freely, to you each day.
