must have been craving Love
when the story paper was passed out
the author drew with words occupying
the big empty space for the illustration
characters in the weekly reader needed more time
to figure out it was Love
get to know one another
go on their first adventure
pretend the pounding of their hearts didn’t exist
before the first kiss.
they were just kids
so was the author
who craved Love so passionately
she searched for it
then scribed it into existence
