This is how we bond

NaPoWriMo Day 24 and today’s poem is called This is how we bond.

This is how we bond.

The first time we meet

I notice your lips and eyes

crease into a smile,

your shoulders are loose,

your palms open and

your hand is warm.

We make social chit chat.

You laugh politely at my

attempts to break the ice

with an amusing tale.

In the queue for the Ladies

we exchange glances

when a young woman

adjusts her assets

to optimise the view

of her eye-wateringly

tight lycra dress.

Later we find ourselves

on the same table and

discover a shared love

of art and words

and a nice handbag

and I think to myself

that it may be possible

we will become friends.
