Tamra Plotnick

Love is a chariot
of the mind,
galloping to distant territories
where you don’t know
the language
nor the customs.

The language of relationships,
    treaties, diplomacy,
will be called for later…perhaps,
and may require translators,
guidebooks, or ethnographies.

About the author:
Tamra Plotnick's poetry and prose works have been published in a number of journals and anthologies, including: Serving House Journal; The Waiting Room Reader, Vol II: Words to Keep You Company, edited by Rachel Hadas; and Global City Review: International Edition. She teaches high school in New York City and lives in Brooklyn with her husband, son, and daughter.
