A Crush Poem...

Some Street in Philadelphia
Photo by Val on Unsplash

to him she was like a ruby gladiola

stretching from a damp green bucket

on the darkest corner of his hood,


the sway of her hips solicited samba rhythms

to push through the cracks of four story windows

down fire escapes to swirl at her trinket filled ankles.


like rain-soaked summer pavements

she cooled his soul. when she smiled, good morning,

he memorized the constellation in her irises.


today he would hand her the blossom

barter for her name

attempt not to blush at her astonishment.


she would tell him her name was isabelle

that she always took the long way home

to gaze at the gladiolas and smell his cologne.
