he spoke to me in that way again today

like he actually had more than two words to say

to his brisk Good Morning Melissa!

my heart promptly melted

when he in turn said not another word more

I wished him car trouble before his hand touched

the door

and for his awful insolence at leaving our lovely

conversation much, much too soon

his impressive chest I could have all too happily

Author's Notes/Comments: 

My pitiful, pathetic crush on customer Brian Luick. He was always oh so very nice to me. The heartless fiend. He had no idea how his being nice just kept feeding my huge infatuation of him.
