Give me a few minutes of your time. A few details of your delicious of your life. I'll find the magic in the mundane. The perfect way to say "I love you." The triumph in a tragedy. Honor it on the page. Make it sing. Maybe even wail. Give it rhythm and breath. A dash of divine rhyme.
I'll write you a poem. Composed just for you. Hand-typed on one of my miraculous time-worn vintage typewriters. These inspired manual machines bear years of work, words and wisdom. Together, with my open heart, your poetic request and kisses from the heavens, your poem will be birthed.
Then, sit. Stay. Receive a reading of your personal poem. Allow me to infuse the air with these words of...you.
The poem is yours to keep. Signed with Love.
