ROMANCE

Tucker Crowe

Why would it be in the air?


Is it necessary for life?


Or does it add texture to your day by breezing or blowing around you?


Is it so powerful that it makes the sky blue?


Could it be outside of you?


Does it envelop you completely?


Whose idea was it that romance could be everywhere?


And what if it's bad?


Can you freshen it?


Find a romance mask?


Ask a government agency to regulate it?


Or if it is on hiatus?


Hold your breath and wait for it to return?


Romance.


I don't think it's in the air.




Tucker Crowe is a writer living in California.
