So it's a date?

Yes no you said to me
As you sipped on your tea
This coffee town outlet expresses no poetry
As you realize that the bag is still in

My scrambled eggs metaphorically describe my vocabulary
I stutter like learner in first gear
Your green eyes make me melt like like like
Some sort of soluble

No? Well then I will not be seen as a coward
A coward, a queer, a conquest, a conundrum
This is my heart and I’ve put it on the line
I’ve pegged it up and you’ve left it to dry

Yes? The door swings and flashes the sun across my face
I’ve seen the light. We meet tomorrow night
The hard parts over. Or is it?
What’s my next question?

    Very witty poem, Rory. Enjoyed the comparison of your vocabulary to "scrambled eggs." I'm all for women's lib, but I'm also glad it's men who usually make the first move and put their hearts on the line when asking a gal out. Love, Carolyn
