A New Sonnet!
Some Reasons Why
Two shots, a beer, six packs of post-it notes,
And I was set to set our lives to rights—
Blue notes, my faults, and red, my stupid fights
With her, and green for notes for anecdotes
To make her laugh, and white for thoughtful quotes
From poets so she’d know I’d scaled the heights
Of culture, and bright pink for those delights
We’d teach each other while we made like goats—
I somehow didn’t see her leave her booth
When all at once her unfamiliar voice—
“Looks complicated, what you’re working on.
What’s it all about?” She didn’t want the truth,
I told myself, and I gave her no choice.
I never asked her name, and she was gone.
