Maneuvering Vallarta’s sidewalks without a care in the world,
My bar owner friend beckons, “Come over here girl!”
“Lori this is Mark, Mark this is Lori”
Certain she had launched a great love story.
I’m a sucker for all seven types of artists;
With destiny did I make a tryst?
Perched on the barstool breeze at my back,
Heart full, plans ahead, I have no lack.
Swearing off dating a musician just last year,
Anticipation hangs in the thick, warm air.
Seduced by confidence, and sound of his laughter,
Can sharing a glass of wine turn into ever after?
