Passion

He noticed her
intensity

studied it –
her sitting there,
reading

Trying to capture
some of that
bookish vehemence

he prodded hopefully,
“Ahh! The plot thickens.”

“Like curdled Hollandaise”
she replied, without
looking up,
flipping the page

He turned on the
television,
swearing off
books.
