Softly and Swiftly

Pretty pictures of the places we’ve
Visited, memories attached to
Snippets of time spent together,
Well, that’s the way that goes,
This dating thing, once called
Courtship, is what we do, we
Do other things, things not talked
About in once-upon-a-time days,
I’m glad we’re together now,
I’m glad we’re now together, and
All possible permutations of
That one, lovely concept, the fact
That at this moment, I’ve had
A realization of a mutual love,
Sneaking up on you, in much the
Same way I am, wielding this axe,
And wearing your grandma’s panties.
