To Slow Gentle Beginnings
He’s playing Goofy Garfield, she’s playing Minnie mouse
He’s applying cologne, she’s spraying perfume
He’s wooing, she’s oohing
His hair is standing on end, her soft hair is dangling
He’s inching forward, she’s drawing closer
He’s raising one eyebrow, she’s raising both
He’s the charming geek, she’s the demure damsel
He’s careful diction, she’s artistic flair
He’s cracking her up, she’s splitting him wide open
He stifles his smile, she deepens her dimples
He’s sniffing sighs, she’s snorting laughter
He loosens his collar, she tickles her earrings
He unbuttons his shirt, she takes off her jacket
He’s gulping chilled water ‘n’ rubbing ice cubes all over
She’s fanning herself ‘n’ cranking up the AC
He’s still perspiring, she’s still sweating
His eyes are wide shut, her eyes wide open
His fingers are quietly beating tunes, her hands are freely gesturing signals
He’s clearing his throat, she’s fiddling with her hair
He’s forgetting pronunciation, she’s forgetting punctuations
He’s swallowing spit, she’s licking lipstick
He’s coming up from the earth, she’s coming down from the clouds
He’s flying, she’s hovering
He’s reaching out, she’s reaching in
His shadow’s dancing, her candlelight’s flickering
He’s getting lost, she’s pointing the road map
He’s steadying her gaze, she’s steadying his gaze
He’s tasting, she’s touching
He’s testing, she’s daring
He’s in a frenzy, she’s in eagerness
He’s crossing, she’s intersecting
He’s firing, she’s fuming
He’s releasing, she’s edging
Why’s it so hot in here?
Whatever are they doing?
Are they exercising?
But No…,’coz it’s so still ‘n’ silent
They’re only…. reading!!
Ha! Ha! Ha!
