virginia is for lovers

who is whose lover?
who does the barista go home to at night,
and what does he say to make her smile?

does the man in the grey coat
have someone to adore?
and if he does,
does he kiss her and hold her tightly?

has the old couple lost that loving feeling?
or do they still cuddle in the dark
and watch black and white movies
with cereal bowls of popcorn?

does that thin teenage girl
have a boyfriend to call
when she gets home from the mall?
will they spend hours on the phone,
talking about skittles and homeroom?

and the librarian.
when was the last time she had a date?
i guess we’ll never know
by her stone-faced expression,
the tale of two cities
three-fourths of the way open
in her lap.


you're welcome for that silly poem i wrote in college. you like how it doesn't rhyme? yeah, i'm edgy like that. seriously, folks. whether or not you have a significant other in your life, valentine's day is a day to show all of your loved ones that you do, in fact, love them.  how will you be doing this? i'll be bringing candy valentines to work to hand out to my co-workers. i will also be dressing in pink and red because a lot of people hate that color combination, and i like to push their buttons. tomorrow night, my roommate and our friend liz are planning a valentine's themed dinner. think steaks, roasted potatoes, caprese salad, fondue, wine for toasting. cheers and cheers!

happy valentine's day!
xoxo, lacey
