Facebook Friends and Zebras

Before we

Were facebook friends.

I stared at your profile, hour

After hour muscular arms across chest

Hinting at your farmer’s tan and

Cerulean blue eyes.


Your eyes form very acute corners.

The same attraction as my first

Day school teacher.


Your smile was leftmost window

Open on my laptop.

My inspiration

While I wrote a paper,

Justifying my unpublished novel,

Concluding in a relationship,

With you.
