When the mundane overshadows romance

I thought of you today
During my daily climb up
Mount Paperwork.
Bureaucracy’s heavens
Spilled a blizzard of
Unresolved queries,
Causing an avalanche
That threatened my sanity.

I thought of you today
While in tedium’s fog,
Unable to see past
Dates and deadlines,
Unwilling to slide
Into the valley of inefficiency.

I thought of you today
From the summit of
My inbox.
I sent up a flare
With my cell phone:

“I love you.”

I thought of you today
As I slowly descended
Through the snows of
Reports and memos,
Ignoring the sting of
Mental frostbite,
Until finally rescued by
Quitting time.

I thought of you tonight
With the memory of
Your spoken thought:
I cost you five points
Off your cell phone.

I thought of you tonight
From the bird’s eye view
Of my mind
During my reflection of
The price of love.

Aha, yet another side of Mr. Blackwell. This is so romantic and lovely -- you have a rare gift with your poetry. Your imagery is flawless, and the humor peppered through only adds to the beauty. An exceptional poem and another joy to read.
My warmest regards,

Just like Jerry, we liked the romance mixed with the regularity of our daily lives.

Liked the method of merging the modern day equivalents to the rack into the very personal emotion called love.
