It can turn into one, at least. Every February at The 5-2, I run love-themed crime poems. For Valentine's Day, I'll link to them all in one post:
Nyla Alisia, "Enter the Sandman: 31S love affair"
Christine Aletti, "Sylvia Plath, Gaslight Left On"
Robert Cooperman, "Delicious Sins"
JD Debris, "The Girl in the American Apparel Ad"
Anne Graue, "The Death of the Nut Harvester"
Clarinda Harriss, "Sweet-talk Me on Valentine's Day"
Scott T. Hutchison, "Glossy"
Elizabeth Lash, "In Memoriam: Ex-KGB Agent Complains..."
Anina Robb, "Affair"
Hal Sirowitz, "Through Pink-Tinged Glasses"
Two more are coming up this month.
I'm now accepting submissions for our April theme: trickery, fooling, or being fooled. Submit today.
