87

by Rania Moallem   Aug 22, 2011


Today might be hectic
bursting with announcements
like the world is declaring
your presence outdoors,
that's what the horoscope said,
disregarding what I read with
shy excitement I clear my throat
as if ready for your call.

You're not a Sagittarius
but who said I even believe in signs
and compatibility,
but I fixed my makeup
and picked the shadow black shirt
you said you liked on me, dark red
gloss, wild like your lips when
sweetly coated with my name
as you whisper it like God's forbidden
calling me-how silly you are sometimes
don't you know he's everywhere?

The phone rings by the time I was
smiling at your stupid jokes
"Are you ready", you said
you've reserved a table
in my favorite restaurant,
and dear I swear I already knew
it was table 87,
I read it was my lucky number
that day.

Though I don't even believe in luck

    I can't believe I read this the whole week it has been on the frontpage yet did not stop to comment...Such a silly person...

    in my head I got it all so clear..
    First there was this woman reading her horoscope for the day...
    later on she started to get ready for her day...
    And then...she gets a call..

    Omg you provided such vivid images...

    The story-tone This poem had to it made it So much more interesting

    Though the ending broke my heart...

    your play with words was magical...

    This should stay 3 4 5678 more weeks on the frontpage because it is truly worthy of it..
