The Valentine Test

THE 2004 VALENTINE TEST


MARJORIE, VALENTINE’S DAY HAS REACHED ITS DESTINATION,

AND DURING ITS DURATION YOU’LL FEEL INSPIRATION,

YOUR IMAGINATION RESPLENDENT WITH ANTICIPATION

OF AFFECTION’S SATISFACTION OF EXPECTATION.

***

OR SO I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE, ERRONEOUS ME.

FOR IT’S DIFFICULT TO PLEASE YOU, YOU SEE.

***

I OFFER YOU FLOWERS, WHICH YOU DECLINE,

DECLARING WE HAVE PLENTY AT HOME.

SWEETS YOU BAN, FOR THE SAKE OF YOUR HEALTH,

AS THROUGH TRADER JOE’S WE ROAM.

***

CLOTHES DON’T CUT THE CLOTH EITHER,

” I HAVE PLENTY,” YOU AVERRED.”

ALRIGHT, HOW ABOUT A NEW CAR?”

“GIVE UP MY SATURN?- “THAT’S ABSURD.”

***

SCRAPING THE BOTTOM OF MY GENEROUSITY BARRELL,

I FINALLY HEARD VOICE AND SAW LIGHT=

LO, LILY’S SEAFOOD CAFE!! AND IT’S NOT FAR AWAY!

(THE CONNOISSERUS’ AND MARJ’S DELIGHT.)

*****************************

Marjorie, have I at last passed your difficult Valentine test?

(Please rely YES, becaused you know I love you.)

SAM
