The Mating Season - Poem by Richard George
Where have I seen her before?
In a crowd, you fool, or nowhere.
She makes you think of somebody
who once in turn reminded you
of some one else.
Daisy-chains, strangers all.
But very familiar,
the way she pulls her lips
back behind her teeth to smile,
that side-tug of the hair.
It's amorous weather:
the first 70 plus of the year,
She sidles up to me -
to bin her picnic.
For once in the calendar
I can entertain the notion
she has left me her telephone number.
In the little brown bag with two handles:
A banana skin.
The Cupids have stolen my wits.
'No' this April day is a kiss on the wind.
