Waiting for cupid, she releases old photons
into the night, commanding lovers
to change direction.

    I wish i was a glowbug,
    a glowbug’s never glum,
    how can you be unhappy,
    when the sun shines out your bum!

    Can’t get enough of this one. Seductive, something draws me back. Capture is emotionally charged. Summer’s never out of reach with this beauty!
