(or Love in a Library)


On Monday

I got lost between Religion

and Metaphysics.

You hacked through Botany

to rescue me.


On Tuesday

I teetered on the kick step

in Literature and rhetoric

while you offered up a serenade

of Italian poetry.


On Wednesday

I said maybe Library relationships

weren’t such a good idea.

You said you appreciated

Satire and humour.


On Thursday I expounded

Platonic philosophy.

You said you were pinning your hopes on

Organic chemistry.


You spent the whole of Friday in

Argument and persuasion.

By the end of the day I’d

succumbed to your Magnetism.


On Saturday we forgot all about Ethics.

We spent the morning in Social interaction,

indulging in Public relations.
