Happy Valentine's Day

It's the stupid stuff I love

he charmed me over the phone
smooth salesman, and I still buy
the patter

ears stick out a bit
boyish cowlick
wicked grin

his email replies
funny or innuendo

his spattered stovetop
sizzling dinner creations

sports aficionado
corvette enthusiast
game for anything

he listens (with an eye roll)
when I say, "I was thinking …"

joins me in crazy adventures
(balloon convention sounds fun)
(and it was)

supports me, my writing
and wields a worthy red pen

our oppositeness on paper
defies forces of nature

and that's what I love about Ray

Happy Valentine's Day!
