Romance and Mystery

should flow through us

like a milkshake

or a German chocolate cake

Abstract Words

as

practical placeholders

when we sit a woman down for dinner

and explain, how it’s gonna be

“You will love me.” Words don’t work too well

so you must show her

like a compelling play

serious, with a sly smile, and laughter

you can’t laugh at your own jokes

and there are all these rules until there aren’t any

If you think you know how to play

she will upend the board

in all seriousness

with a smile on her face.
