Piet Mondrian, Adventures of the Black Square,

1937-42, Whitechapel Museum

 

We met in a line

by chance not by design

 

This suggested a new way of dating

and I thought perhaps of mating

 

Till then, I had been an aciesopath

waiting in lines incurred my wrath

 

I liked her look

I put her number in my book

 

We met only twice after that

Alas, the encounters fell flat

 

Life is a wheel of chance 

often you lose, sometimes you dance

 

That said, I now systematically pursue

my chances in a queue.
