A not so dangerous game

I wasn’t about to tell all
but I made an appointment
and promised
I would at least chit chat

She was born down the street
from Notre Dame
but never lived in France
and I remember asking myself
what does that have to do
with Saint Joseph County

She wanted to know
where I was born
but I wouldn’t tell her
didn’t want her to know
we had something in common

Next thing you know
we were playing 20 questions
and it was obvious
from the git go
who would end up winning

june two thousand twenty-two
