Happy Valentine's Day, postcard fans! Heart Day at the Shovan house is a low-key affair. It falls between several more important January/February holidays, namely: every single birthday in the household, including the dog's (2/17).
I hope Cupid aims well and is kind to you today. Love comes in many forms, including this one:
Cartoon Boy Meets Cartoon Girl
You have no lips to kiss or speak.
I have no ears to listen.
Let me lean on this picket fence,
watch you hover
over a loop of jump rope,
your braids drawn up
by bat-winged ribbons.
You cannot see my baseball cap
or read my cautious expression.
Your lashes fell a moment before
the cartoonist imagined us.
But I will wait. The next panel,
with your fluttering lids, must come.
The artist -- would he leave us
forever like this?
