Human’s Sexual Instinct

under bright sunshine
at a busy intersection
in downtown
Saigon,
two strangers wanted to across the street
both were patiently waiting
for
red light
turning to green

she stood right in front of him
so
close
he could smell an indescribable odor from her body
a strange mixture
between
flower fragrance
and a unique scent of human skin

wind blew and threw her long hair
into
hot air
and onto his face
his nose became irritated
the funny feeling was about to make him sneeze
he tried to hold back for the sake of courtesy.

somehow she also sensed the same funny feeling at her long neck
that forced her to turn her face back
she saw a male stranger
standing right beside her
looking
at her back.

feeling
annoyed
by his odd look,
she was about to question him
who the hell did he dare stare at her like that
but she held her words in time
said nothing and gave him
a nice smile
instead.

a conversation about the weather on that specific day somewhat was started
it was how the two strangers got caught and knotted together,
on the same cobweb
of love and marriage
for
the rest
of their lives.

some think it’s karma
others believe it’s god’s will
I call it’s stupidity
driven
by
human’s sexual instinct
