Swiping for Something More - Brianna Stoever


ENJOYS MUSIC

So do I, but it’s no guarantee of a spark

Yet there’s a match


Do you ever wonder why there’s a D in

fridge but not refrigerator?

Not really, what about driving on a park way

and parking on a driveway?


Or why there’s no D in your name?

Want me to change that?

...

Just figured I could add some length to your

name

Not much apparently.

LET’S GET COFFEE

I don’t like coffee, but hot chocolate works


Maybe Saturday we could just meet?

I’m much better in person.

Funny, I’m better in text

Plus I can’t kiss through a phone

I have an emoji that says otherwise

and it’s more sure fire.

I’m a good kisser, everyone says so

everyone. really.

Gimme a try ;)

You won’t regret it ;)

No one has yet ;)

Yeah, that’s why we’re both still here.


I’M CUTE

Bare bio, but he’s not wrong on being cute.

Want to have sex?

Absolutely not.



HARRY POTTER FAN


Tread lightly, you don’t know how much of

a fan they are.

Pottermore says I’m a Gryffindor,

But I’m much more of a Ravenclaw


Give this one four months.

Throw away the app – you found what you

wanted.

Until premature I love you’s splash the

flames

Until work becomes the only priority

Until you don’t workout enough

Until you’re no longer enough

UntilUntilUntilUntilUntilUntil

Until you go back to the app

and start all over again.

My wife, Mary, and I are celebrating our thirtieth anniversary. We sit at our dining room table and eat by candlelight. We dine on fries and baby back ribs, which I fetched from an Outback Steakhouse.

For Chris Kitson Long airborne when I spotted her, a little cinder-nib drawing zeroes neater than the grooves in vinyl. Listen, wait, obey, I’ve read it said. Don’t lose that crucial element of drift

Toons - Fabrice Poussin

Another one has ended, it is gone; but Disney lives, for sure, in all his fantasy, like mom did staring at the screen with little boy, and he never asked. Decades beyond the time of the little guy, be
