I bought you this card;
it was blank like my love.
I didn’t want to commit
to a date I couldn’t recall.
It might have been a first

kiss, no
anniversary, something

about a cat we rescued. All lost
in the slurry of our years.

So, I copied some verse
from another card
to be thoughtful.
It reminded me of someone
like you. It was as broad
as a medium cold reading,
or FBI profile.
There’s a little bit of everyone here,

perhaps even you.
Ow! Too honest!

OTOH, we poke fun at greeting card writers, but their verses have their uses.

And, though honesty doesn't work in so many cases, well, maybe she laughed.

Great presentation! I love what you wrote here, it's beautifully rendered and easy to understand, well done.
