Offbeat Romance

Beach bum spikes

With ocean blue eyes

Peddling charm and orchids

Down the aisles

Of liquor and garland art

And tales taller than the peeling ceilings

With the character of a comfy thrift store sofa

Selling ocarinas door to door

With a suave wink

Traveling the wrong way on an icy road

To the land of myrrh and

Cairo nights

That intrigue the

Piquing curiosity

Of a docile cynic

Donning crystals of doubt and hope.

Both gambling everything,

Both winning the prize.
