A Love Story By John Wheaton

March 10, 2014 Comments Off on A Love Story By John Wheaton

Liz and Jon visited an art museum uptown.

“I’m in love,” Liz said.

“I know, I know,” Jon said.  He fingered the lapels of his dinner jacket.

In the foyer, the paintings trickled from their canvasses.  Picasso’s women wept cerulean tears.  Dali’s clock slipped away into oblivion.

“Is this supposed to happen?”  Jon asked.

“I’m doing it,” Liz whispered.  “It’s me, it’s me, it’s me.”
