i may endlessly dissertate
Valentine’s a social construct

Chaucer did mention romantic love
modernity morphed it into a conspiracy

so chocolatiers

restaurateurs

hoteliers

florists

and all manner of traders

can make more moolah

yet, i can’t avoid concluding
the day truly sucks
without a significant partner.
