the watch

you said,
write me a poem
and you smiled at me
about the watch dials
we woke up this morning
looked, and lo and behold
they glowed in the dark
you hated this watch
looked too much like a man's
I said, it is unisex
and has this huge face
one can see across the room
you insisted on the bracelet
there was no special occasion
just because
just because of our love
silver hearts and diamonds
and you said, wear it on the left
the left is for the heart
wear it next to the watches
so feminine and pretty
most of them
except this big one
which you said was too like a man's
well, sweetheart
my eyes aren't what they were
I like things that are easy to see
so here it is
and I love the watch
you gave me for Christmas
the one you gave me
for Valentine's Day
the one that
reminds me of you
and this watch, with the
glow-in-the-dark dials
that finally sold you on it
so much like a man's
well, sweetheart
isn't that
appropriate? :)
