For her, falling in love

was just what it sounded like:

a clumsy mishap.

She stepped in a fresh,

warm pile and tried

to scrape it off

the bottoms of her shoes,

but that’s always

easier said than done.

Now, she tracks it along

wherever she goes,

leaving little footprints

on sidewalks and

in her friends' apartments.

Sorry,” she says,

“I’ll clean that up.”

But it’s too late.

They all swap glances,

and no one says a thing,

but everyone knows

you don’t just

wash love off the floor

with lemon water.
