Commissioned by harpersbazaar.co.uk and poet/ model max-wallis.com. Allow Yourself This One Day is the final poem in Max’s d├ębut pamphlet, Modern Love, where he traces the year-long course of a love affair and all its constituent parts: sex and sensuality, longing and loneliness, desire and disappointment, heady beginnings and inevitable endings; in a world dominated by high street brands, text messaging and social media.
