H.E.B. Shenanigans

letting the look linger, just half a second too long tells all.
what is love? this is dumb at first site. that’s what I am–
dumb, when this,

the linger-look happens, I get stunned into stupid stupor.
oh, how cute. look what a look does to my verses:
these are sick and sweet, too cute even for me, too adorable
except for the tiniest baby.

***

babies are bigger today. you can see the ugly ones that may not
grow into something other than homely. I appreciate this
because sometimes I think all I notice is the neat and tight,

the beyond gorgeous. god, the thought frightens me, makes my
heart flutter more than it should,
what with the condition and all.
