Harley Claes ~ Field Guide to Foraging Feelings

A stew of heart shavings & oud of tear drop
Can pose as a love potion
Instead of a poison
Damaging every soul to touch it
Even despite lawful protest
The art of collecting these amorous necessities
Is nothing more than a burden
And ingestion is not suggested
Unless you wish to be infected
With the love virus
