You can tell right away
that she’s intelligent
by the way she holds her head;
intelligently like she is pondering
what she hears,
cross-referencing through trillions
of neural connections,
giving a thorough critical analysis,
synthesizing and expressing
new and creative thought
while pouring your tea
with the grace of a high priestess.
When her attentive, animate face
erupts into a smile
there is none lovelier to behold.
Her innate sweetness has attracted like,
and together they have begotten
more sweetness, and savvy;
a present of love
from the universe to the world
wrapped up in all their truth.
She is a scientist who knows politics
with a conscience.
She will speak her mind.
