Curious Candy Hearts

Valentine heart shield, 
sword-and-sandal warrior
wields pink battle-ax
 
spaceship skywriting
BE MY VALENTINE across
the star-strewn black void
 
Bride of Frankenstein
gifts a box of chocolate hearts
to Valentine Boo
 
Valentine’s Day ball
in Area 51:
ET’s bright red gown
 
zombie Valentine
hearts that say XOXO
and taste like fresh brains
 
Valentine’s snowstorm:
each snowflake a red lace heart
in pink Martian sky
