She tells me she thinks horizontally:
An ‘aha’ moment for this vertical thinker.
She says it is another reason we should not be together,
So I point out evolutionary theory or genetics,
Or some paper I read once about pheromones
And how our kids would cover the axis
(Centre line aligned).
Opposites attract for a reason, I ponder.
And as we pass a potted tree
She announces it as a Grevillea
And I counter with Banksia ?
But neither of us know for sure
So we agree it’s a flowering native.
