(a mini haibun)
As a flummoxed teenager when the world is turvy-topsy
One would think true love is an establishments farce…
Then one day the sky clears along with the face – fashion-scmation
Doesn’t matter anymore either, because true love only sees good.
The key, their key fits
Your lock and visa versa
– and love is all just.
“A heart is a lock, but a lock can be opened with a duplicate key.”
