eyes meet like a reflection in a mirror,
lips curve like a horseshoe.
His pace quickens as If the breeze was carrying him,
Her direction changes like a leaf in the wind.
his face stalls like a rusty engine,
head hung like a captured pirate.
he notes this in his mind like a checklist and carries on.
Eyes meet like hooks,
lips curve like a graph.
his pace quickens like a skidding pebble,
her direction changes like an exit on a highway.
his face stalls like traffic,
head hung like an escapee.
this remains in his mind like residue
