Modern Love

by Max Wallis

'Modern Love: Texting' is one of the longer poems in the book. On the surface it's very easy to read and yet it really made me think about our attitude to relationships and how we express what we feel - are we really as 'modern' as we think? This is definitely a book I will return to again and again.


Punch. Gone. The love letter's dead.
Think that'll make us feel better.
When our hearts turn red again,
we'll wish we had the numbers still
to say
hello, hi, how do you do.
