Invitation – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Subtle – VJs Weekly Challenge 54





Days passed
as sly glances became overt
with no response,
though no overture was proffered
she dallied by the lift
and waited by the copier,
he was oblivious
until that one day
she lingered in the cafe,
sat next to him, and
hit him with an invitation
written on her face.

ยฉPaul Vincent Cannon
