Rutapottamus
D G Williford

Giggling, flirting, hour calls on the phone.
Waiting, watching, wondering

Jogs in the park, walking the dogs
Elbows bumping over Chardonnays

Firelit starry nights, sparkling eyes
Connections and promises

Circles of gold, tinkling of glasses
Promises

                 What if after the promise comes
                       Blackness?

                 What if after the magic comes
                       Madness?

                 What if what we thought was love
                      is a Rutapottamus?

There is no such thing as a Rutapottamus...
Is there such a thing as eternal love?

You tell me if you ever saw a Rutapottamus
crossing the road on a summer's day...

You tell me if you ever saw a Rutapottamus
buying tickets to Bocelli...

You tell me if you ever stood behind a Rutapottamus at the ATM...

You tell me about everlasting love
