The Cinderella Interview

She asks about him
in expectant space
with bright sun spotlight.
Cue response
of how we met
with princess giggles
and wide-eye smiles,
then
What comes next?
I shrug and
give the well-trod
explanation,
the this and that
of what makes sense
the right now 21st century
practicality
after all
but in my pocket
a memory of the
glass slipper
I am sure would
fit just right.
