Evol Psych & Heart Symbolism

The likeness of a voluptuous female form in symbolic hearts
Has been noted by many who point out their rounded curves
Along with vital redness, insinuating blood's inherent passion

Vulgar though it may seem to most people at first glance
From the vantage point of any Evolutionary Psychologist
There is nothing nonsensical about this choice of emblem

In nature (especially among our closest primate cousins)
Sight and scent of feminine posteriors are signal enough
For mating contests between male members of a species

How apropos that our sign for Love should reflect Biology
Subconsciously heterosexual men crave genetic cloning
Blessed be those women who permit them to regenerate!

My goodness, it's butt ekphrasis...and a point well enough stated. A very fine Valentine's bit, sir.
