Curious Candy Hearts

Valentine heart shield, 
sword-and-sandal warrior
wields pink battle-ax
spaceship skywriting
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
