ack emma

i’ll admit my surprise

never expected it to

happen quite this way

still i must say

i’m happy for you

i thought i’d play

emma the secret

matchmaker

but that never worked

the way i or she

intended —

although my plans

were merely

mischievous inactions

23 and safety

don’t really matter now

in more directions

than i’d originally

thought so when

you read this i

hope you smile

knowing that the

best-laid plans of

giggly girls go awry

sometimes

one day it will be

me telling you

about the one who

found me and decided

to keep me forever

but that day is not

today, which is for

you.  i approve
