My Recent Love

My ears have captured words that strangers use to describe me, sometimes, actually – most of the time.

I have heard things like weird guy, crazy guy, what is wrong with him, is he okay.
Don’t worry, after many stings I recently found some honey. I was in Disney weeks ago.
It was time to hop into a ride. I was in line bored and flapping away.

As usual, some stared, some looked away, some smiled. But a little girl just made me glow.

She was as tall as me. She looked at me as if she knew me.

I saw her opening her arms in the air. I started flapping and baaaam, I saw her disappear into the crowd.

That was the first time I looked good to a girl my size.
So, remember, even a glance matters.
