She lacks romance and sees a chance.
He instinctively questions, analytic and scientific
Shaping a way from scarcity and insecurity.
She drinks biblical wisdom,
Follows the dictates of her church,
Donates her time to those less blessed.
He presses pants and shirt for surprising date
Her picture is blonde and coiffed and quite perfect
He wonders at her interest, tamps down his hopes
So when disappointed, he's not abashed.
She suggests uplifting speaker at church
He counters with "Planet of the Apes"
Later at coffee house, he praises limitless vistas
She reminds him, God makes the prospects.
In the car, beside her poised beauty
He ventures that everything should be questioned
A patch of pink blooms on her soft cheeks
She raises a hand, he imagines a benediction,
Reminds him, the Bible has all answers
He leans back and steals an appraising look
She's beautiful yet she attracts him not.
Unflustered, she agrees to his request
An early end, he has a morning job
She has an early counsel.
It shakes him
A beautiful girl who does not attract.
