First Date (poem)

On our first date

I’m going to wear Hermes sandals
and I’ll buy an extra two for you at the bazaar—
even though it’s far too soon to get each other gifts…
Consider this a blessing from the Greek Gods.
Oh, and I promise not to be late!
And I swear I’ll be clothed above the ankles!
Gotta keep the mystery to avoid that future misery.

As soon as we meet by the local nival park
on a bench engraved with lopsided hearts
and speckled in bird poo, I’ll somehow convince
you to try them on in the right dab center of winter.

I’ll hold out my hand,
You [hopefully] won’t let it flail
all by its lonesome,
awaiting frost’s bite.

We’ll ascend to a Flower of Life
constellation in the midnight-dark
sky and slow-dance
till our love flowers.

Evy Zen (formerly Eva PoeteX) is a mystic poetess, eclectic artist, fiction writer, and wellness advocate who calls the Greater Cleveland area home sweet home. Born a Clevelander with a Greek lineage, the arts started being a major part of her life the moment she picked up her first crayon. To date, dozens of Evy's writings have been featured in publications like Thought Catalog, The Journey Magazine, and Journey of the Heart: Women's Spiritual Poetry. As a spoken word poet, she has also had the opportunity to collaborate with numerous musicians across the globe. Currently, Evy is the Founding Editor of Poehemian Press and runs the decade-young poetry website (formerly The Artistic Muse). Additionally, she is the author of several independently and locally published poetry books, including "Esoterra" and "Sacred Shapes." Furthermore, she works as a full-time freelance writer and editor. In 2012, Evy received a Bachelor of Arts degree (honors) in Creative Writing from Cleveland State University. She also obtained a Diploma (distinction) in Exercise Nutrition from Shaw Academy four years later. When she's not creating, Evy Zen recharges her batteries by reading her weight in books ("The Alchemist" by Paulo Coelho is her personal favorite), going on epic bike rides, meditating to ambient music, and racing super cars behind the safety of her computer or TV screen.
