auburn hair
shoulder length
primary blue
& red
horizontal stripes
(but not patriotic)
you intoxicate me
with your 60s vibe
(didn’t Kerouac know you?)
your fingertips smell
like espresso grounds
the tight curves of your body
forever undulate
hypnotizing passersby
stop now
stop here
let me remind you
that you are more
than the sum
of your hourglass figure

You Are Laughter Personified.

carry on &
continue to delight
but always remember
your limitless potential
laughter heals wounds
laughter transports us
laughter is both
your entrance
& exit

and I love you, now and always.
