A Love Note
By Christopher Munroe
I don’t like sand.
It’s coarse, and it’s rough and it’s irritating, and it gets everywhere.

Give me your heart, make it real, or else forget about it…
And so you see, Padme, while I do hate sand, you’re not like sand, and so I do love you.
Because, rather than being anything like sand, you are my sweet Sand-tana…
