What A Surprise - Poem by Betty Bleen

to see you as I was getting off work.
You stopped by, you said,
for a cup of coffee.
I smiled as the words
escaped your lips,
both of us laughing at this,
both knowing it for the ruse it was.
As you followed me home
so I could change,
did you happen to notice
my smile in the side mirror?
I was hard pressed to keep it on my face.
It lit up my car like a tiny sun,
bounced round and round
from ceiling to floor.
Tried to unlock the doors,
and the windows...
Said, it wanted to ride
in your car.
