Unintentionally Flirting With the Elderly (A "Poem")


[I]
I frightened an old Asian lady
In a crowded mall –
I witnessed her sneeze
From forty feet away.

[II]
A few seconds later, a few feet closer,
I caught her eye.
The mall was loud;
I mouthed “God bless you.”

[III]
But the sneeze was long forgotten;
Her eyes grew wide,
She quickened her pace
As she sped past me.
