Love is Not Pie
Variations on a Monogamish Theme
Caught between a loving husband and a man from her past, one woman chooses an unconventional way to explore her personal "road not taken". Love is not Pie is a personal exploration navigating the world of consensual non-monogamy and polyamory. This collection of poems - erotic, yearning, sweet and angry - was written by Lazaruk to and about her two beloved men over the course of several years. Collected here for the first time, the original poems are woven together with new pieces that provide context for how the story unfolded. In this expressive work of poetry, Lazaruk explores attachment, fear, love, lust, grief and the push-pull between what she knows is right and how she justifies her actions. Love is Not Pie will resonate with readers who have flirted with relationships outside the norm of Western marital conventions, as well as those who are interested in peering behind the curtain of what most of us show the world about our private lives.
Narrated here by the author, she and her producer Paul Tedeschini, collaborated to create the sensual aural world of Love is Not Pie, setting the various scenes through the skillful use of sound design to add a unique ambience and feel to these tiny little gems. We hope you enjoy the audio experience. Please note it is best realized with headphones, both for the sound quality as well as for keeping the NSFW nature of this work on the DL while listening. Have fun!
