If people were fonts

She’d make beautiful words;

Her consonants supple,

Each vowel so stunning;

No need for italics,

Letters lovely as they are;

No edits, no revisions,

Her script alluring enough;

Capital “L’s” like curlicue hairs,

Loop once, loop twice,

Again and again;

Lowercase “o’s” like

Wide and deep eyes,

Intriguing, inviting,

With nothing to hide;

Her capital “Y” like

A radiant laugh,

So big and so round,

So breathlessly full;

If people were fonts

She’d be read every day,

In books, in magazines,

On billboards big and small;

If people were fonts

I’d write beside her words,

But Cursive doesn’t pair

With my Comic Sans.
