I am nearing seventy,
my woman, has me, surpassed.
that hallmark of difference,
is a race I can’t catch her up,
so always on the lookout for ways,
ways to equalize the difference.
laying in bed on a beautiful
Tuesday, (renamed Twosday)
romantic muse-marveling how
an ordinary weekday came to be
so spectacular, the senses are
keening, preening, as the warm
loving feelings upping with sun,
rising, and my eyes welling tears,
of youthful gratefulness and love
I propose we get matching tattoos
to lock in this storied moment historical.
Stealthy moves as if to bed exit,
when with a sudden twist of fate,
reverses with one of the three pillows,
no pretense, she tries to beat me to near-death.
“What tattoo exactly did I have in mind?”
Till Death Do Us Part
(inside a heart, optional).
“That can be arranged, if you get more deranged!”
from now on my passing thoughts of loving celebration,
gonna just keep on passing by, except for maybe, just,
tattoos of chocolates, a money saving device, so many
occasions useful, now you understand this poem’s entitlement.
always a kernel of imaginative chocolate storytelling
with a center within of a truthful happening
