At the check-out: a hypothetical romance

If I'm falling in love with Ariel
who works at the Whole Foods market
will they write (when I've had my burial)
"he didn't know how to park it!
did he dream that a May-September
was what she would want to remember?"
yet this charmer is so exquisite
for some reason although  what is it?

She came (she remarked) from Florida
only just a few years ago
she performs on my heart a corrida
I exaggerate? yes   I know
I can't tell you how oddly she moves me
for no reason that I could explain
if the rational reader reprooves me
I'll assent   I'm a touch insane
