stream out of our mouths
like we’ve been meaning
to speak them for some time.
Only we will know that we’re
actually improvising these words
according to the way we’ve been trained
at the Royal Academy of the Surprising.
Is there anything else
that can prove how suited
we are for one another?
Perhaps our sexual chemistry
would be a subtle hint, but
we shouldn’t go flaunting that around
in front of our poor single friends.
