Love Poem

There are a lot of things to think about when
a person enters the room with your life
I like a comfortable chair I like a certain
cut of jeans the way a pair of shoes sticks
from the hem of a frayed leg opening
a hip bone protruding from the index
of signifiers or a t-shirt flares at an angle it's those
things and a smile say or a knowing glance
over tapioca tea those little bubbles
travel through a straw and lodge
in the back of your brain telling the waitress
this is the first time I've had this feeling
and you say check your teeth for sesame seeds sweetie
as I swivel to the bathroom
love is not impossible kiddo
love is the most reasonable thing of all.
