When we first started dating I let my wife borrow my copy of my favorite book, which she returned annotated with a running commentary in little scraps of paper. It will always be my favorite book. I now have a second copy of the book for loaning out. The copy she borrowed lives on a special shelf under a glass dome display. I only handle it while wearing powder-free nitrile gloves. I have day dreams about our children fighting over who will inherit when we die.
At the June pop-up market one of the other vendors, Ned from Go Local Produce, asked if I'd be willing to trade a poem for a giant bag of fresh fruit & vegetables. Yes. Yes, I would! To be clear, he specifically asked for a "cheesy love poem" for his "teeny tiny cutie pie" wife.
