i.
  
you've pegged
me as a kiwi -  
   
fuzzy, surprisingly  
sweet inside.  
   
   
that's thoughtful,  
and reciprocation's key,  
so i've given it a lot of thought.  
   
i'd say you're an apricot!  
   
sweet,  
like a peach,  
juicy,  
rosy, delicate,  
   
soft.  
   
   
ii.  
   
sans sarcasm:  
   
i've never seen  
a woman look  
so drop-dead  
gorgeous in  
burnt mustard  
and coffee stains.  
   
   
iii.  
   
like a super computer -  
   
the efficiency of your  
quirks and feats,  
   
the way you eat ice cream cones,  
step by step,  
particular intent, no mess -  
   
deliberate,  
   
like the way you la-di-da  
when you don't know the words,  
   
the way you stretch  
onto my chest and shoulders  
in the car, and how you twist  
your leg and foot so elegantly  
while we wait in line,  
   
the gangster rap  
and memes  
and coffee,  
   
the overwatch    
and pups  
and laughing -  
   
   
you're so damn good at being you.  
   
   
   
you're so damn good at being...
