I need to know your favorite cereal
and where you like to be on rainy days.
Whether or not you like piano jazz
And if you’ve ever been on a picnic before.
I want to know why you dress in black
and for that matter, why you don’t.
I would like your opinion on the necessity of heartbreak
as applied to personal and emotional growth.
I also need to know how you feel about trampolines
as applied to drunken stargazing.
I want take you somewhere you’ve never been,
right within in your own hometown.
The kind of place you always pass by
without giving a second thought.
It will turn out that you love this place
and come back to it again and again.
I will do this to prove a point
about taking chances on the unfamiliar
and how that which you know so well
can still offer a pleasant surprise
