Short Attention Spans: “New Beginnings,” by Aoife Leonard

Three drinks in and he leans in,
Or I lean in.
Or we lean in.
Anyway, the kiss begins,
A graceful bump of lips and chins.
Romance is an unpredictable thing,
But the dance of soft moth’s powdered wing,
Takes flight from somewhere in my chest,
And history becomes the rest.
