Jennifer Armstrong – Valentine

Jennifer Armstrong


I know how to find
romantic spots.

Out back by the dumpsters
that time
there were birds there.
And what about that sky?
    Some blue
And remember sitting
by the drainage ditch
when the fog rolled in?
Felt like we were on some
dadgum movie set.
That fog masked
the sugar cane stench too.
    Oh yeah!
That “beauty is in the eye
of the beholder” shit?
    It’s true.
Every day has a valentine in it
if you know how to find ’em.
    And I do.
Yeah, I know how to do
