Love is Not Pie
Variations on a Monogamish Theme
by Katherine Lazaruk

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 stor y unfolded, how the love affair finally ended, and why. 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.

KATHERINE LAZARUK wrote this poetry collection after her own experience of embracing radical honesty in her marriage, when she extended herself into the realm of non-traditional relationships. She has spent nearly twenty-five years exploring personal growth, self-awareness, and self-acceptance. She brings that knowledge to her poetry, sharing what it feels like to be fully embodied, fully yourself, and fully expressed in this limited world.
