because today is world poetry day...

here's the sweetest poem I know. Enjoy.

Girl, Boy, Flower, Bicycle by M K Joseph

This girl
Waits at the corner for
This boy
Freewheeling on his bicycle
She holds
A flower in her hand
A gold flower
In her hands she holds
The sun
With power between his thighs
The boy
Comes smiling to her
He rides
A bicycle that glitters like
The wind
This boy this girl
They walk
In step with the wind
Arm in arm
They climb the level street
To where
Laid on the glittering handlebars
The flower
Is round and shining as
The sun
