Short Poems Between Enrique and I: No.2

Enrique: "Used a golden ticket
                 to ride in the belly of a silverwhale,
                 there I found a young woman reading a book
                 smile warm like july breezes,
                 held my hand like this---
                 could be the beginning of something good
Me:          And in the mirror I had seen another
                who smiled at my frown---
                took my hand to look into my eyes,
                both a sea f nervousness...
                to realize he was gentle and kind despite his forwardness
