He calls himself “fashion poet”,

One or two others know it…

In pursuits

Avoiding lawsuits,

He certainly doesn’t want to blow it!

Him being man and all,

Must carefully judge his call…

With less passion

Than stereotypical fashion,

Not being the Beast at the ball.

Gender matters to him,

Especially if women…

They’re the kind

He most has in mind,

Do they mind if he tiptoes in?

<3 JOANNE <3

❤    JOANNE    ❤

Putting it very succinctly,

Joanne in our eyes is distinctly…

A treasure to see

While we happily,

Visit her office meekly.

In fashion that’s the best,

In professional confidence rests…

Her cheery manner

With not a complainer,

Or any of which we’ll attest!

Blessed by her children dear,

We’re blessed by her presence here…

Those of us taken,

Loyalties unshaken

Would make our affection of her clear!

We hope this Valentine will do,

We sure do appreciate you…!

My “cingulomania” resides

In very few hugs or tries…

At the Rehab Reunion

Only one gracious human

Responded to the need in my eyes.

It didn’t help a bit

That for a while behind the table I hid…

Because of nerves (?)

Anxiousness serves

To restrict the hugs, I admit.

So most therapists shook my hand,

Smilingly near the whole band…

Spied Kristen and bolted

She saw me devoted

And gave that gentle hug grand!

She and a few others sat down

At our table after serving around…

I mostly listened

Perhaps my eye glistened,

The feeling of being loved was profound.
