How many red lights does it take for a married woman to stop?
The next Valentine's, I will buy you candy,
and pretend that you can hear the answer.
And, of course, since this is me thinking, it will involve freeways that go on forever.
You will want to take my hand.
You will tell me to keep finding you, on and on.
