Hawaiʻi Sonnet 75 (Enter Laughing)

I’m waiting, furtive, hoping that woman coming around
the corner is the one seeking me, secret agent Lee,
here for a sub rosa meeting.  Of course I expect
your message will be in code, but over the years,
I’ve developed a manual refining my parsing technique.
I do know something you don’t.
Spies like me, can bend over forward,
flexible to a greater and greater extent, practicing,
this hunt for affection, as a top-level assignment demands,
and I’ve discovered, being able to touch your toes,
if not lay lay your palms flat on the floor is mission critical,
just in case your next contact, perhaps coming
stealthily upon you from behind, in the end a double-agent,
will pass on to you your next operation in love.
