“This Year’s Valentine” by Philip Appleman

Here is a link to “This Year’s Valentine” by Philip Appleman. Yes, it’s a Valentine’s poem, but it’s different from any I’ve read before. (I think even you cynics will like it.)


The poem has a dark and apocalyptic feel. It’s like, “This is the end of the world but our love endures.” Pretty intense.
