Strange Interlude

From Robert Hamill Wiki

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.
