Romance is not just
between a pretty she
and a dark him
Romance may happen between
the naked river flowing restlessly
through the hard limbs of the rocks
Romance is felt between
a quiet virgin morning
tucked in a loose sheet of sky
and the naughty sun
spreading gold
all over her body
A day is born, then
In this day, romance is seen at
a local restaurant
with a bunch of women
laughing over unfinished jokes
It’s the joy of being a girl all over again
without having to fill the moment
with any real boys
