Graceful Brooklyn Poem

What makes you move
across the room so gracefully
with a red paper heart
in your hand just for me?
I stoop and the shove of light
from this window makes
me think of Brooklyn and you.
Rain musk and the humid
slow movement that makes
everyone feel sleepy
and solid. To focus more
on personal achievement
like saving the captain of your team
or discussing strategies that seem
leaden to the steering committee.
Are you sound? Is this all that you can be?
I would like you to determine me fit
for consumption. I'll even help
you load the van with your product.
