JustLikeThose (to Brandon)


It is said

That love surprises

You that it

Happens like bumping

Into someone at

The grocer or

Like a snowball

Catching you square

In the jaw

It approaches like

A frightened child

By nightmares crawls

To you like

A naughty puppy

It blooms like

Late April snowdrops

And ends like

Sunsets in Santa Fe

But we’ve tickled

Each other like

Wound up Jack-in-the-boxes

Popping up after

A few turns

Love ambushed us

Just like that

Just like those
