I think I'm hilarious... and sometimes other people do, too.

Sweet Interlude

You stopped by today

To return my books;

I came downstairs

With a bowl full of Medjools.

"Wanna date?"

You laughed

And laughed.

"Clever," you said,

And took one.

"I bet it's been a long time

Since you've had one,"

I said.

You laughed harder.

"You'd be right," you said

And took another.

"They're really good,"

I said.

"Yes," you replied,

They are."

And you smiled.
