Sitting between my hopeful Romeo –
who reminds me of a cute piglet,
and someone I’ve nicknamed Jonathon Jo –
because his mouth is like an O.
Romeo hands me a coded compliment.
Jonathon Jo doesn’t understand.
His O expands until it looks as if he could swallow
a hog, whole.
I’m piggy in the middle,
caught between a man who may swallow a hog
and a cute piglet.
I kick my legs and giggle like a kid
at a joke I cannot share.
