Sara & Yanni

For Tony, his kitty and his pup

I called to Sara
across the Sahara —
I like to give her
her space.
Yanni, on the other hand,
gets right up in my face.
I take my time with Sara,
she’s working on her baggage,
but Yanni is the kind of guy
who’s really low on laggage.

So there sat Sara
across the Sahara
looking at first disdainful,
but eventually
she came to me —
see, now that wasn’t so painful,
and Yanni, in the meanwhile,
lit’rally kissed my scars.
He’s a kind heart and adventurer
who likes to ride in cars.
