I Left My Hat


Forgotten in the moment,
bent in a pentagram
for that first kiss.
Our collision was complete.
Geometric.  Reciprocal.
I wore it home on the tram.
It concealed enough of my eyes
to steal sideways glances,
while our hands became absolute.
Then I knew there were hats in heaven.  
Romantic notions.  Miracles. 
When it was time to go,
I left it behind on purpose,
next to the trilby at your door;
knowing I would be back
to the golden ratio,
lasting result of chance.

  3. Favorite line: "Then I knew there were hats in heaven." Also the geometry of love is fun in this: "geometric, reciprocal." Love this poem.

  7. I love these sections:

    "Our collision was complete.
    Geometric. Reciprocal."

    "It concealed enough of my eyes
    to steal sideways glances,
    while our hands became absolute."

    "to the golden ratio,
    lasting result of chance."

    Delicious writing!

  16. Never trust a man who wears a trilby on a tram. Clearly a narcissist.
    Other than that, nicely interposed images and flow.
