Great, graceful gait, … trendy tread,
Swaggish sway, incarcerating smile!
Curvy defense, artistic contours
Work of the Greatest artist,
You’re 16 @ 52, puberty in menopause,
National conversation stopper,
Millennium face turner,
But in all these,
How much more joy you carry
That I wish I could be made to know!
Race away not with my feeble heartbeat
Just let your warmth provide needed heat.
[A quasi-sonnet dedicated to a boss’ colleague]
