Monica Only Had One Ear

Monica only had one ear.
In all her years she’d never heard the call of love,
Or the call of the market trader who sold prescription sunglasses
She’d never be able to wear.
“Only Five Pounds a Pair!”
He thought she had lovely hair and sad eyes.
She passed him by every morning
Never knowing that what he was truly calling
Was “Monica, be mine.”
