to see your face
was to fall in love.
apparently.
 
but how does one
fall in love
with a stranger?
 
and yet your face
is stuck in my head
like a song.
 
inconvenient,
‘cause I won't likely
hear the song again.
 
maybe i fall
too often in love
or too easily.
 
maybe a poem
is here wasted
on a stranger.
 
maybe the poem
is for your beauty
and deserved...
 
if i can't help
but fall in love
with the face of
 
a stranger,
 
maybe i am
here for a while
to make poems for
 
strangers.
