April 11, 2016: What a Wink Can Do

A wink from a stranger
can either make you feel
squeamish and uncomfortable
inside, or
it can cause butterflies
in your abdomen
to float high
within your throat. 

A wink has the power
to trip you in front
of your insanely hot
crush, or
it can manipulate you
into showing up at his doorstep
with sweaty palms
and melted chocolate kisses.
