A second poem for National Poetry Day

It's National Poetry Day today and I'd also like to share a poem that I like from the NZETC Collections.

It's called Love poem for a Geek on Dixon Steps by Airini Beautrais, from Sport 35: Winter 2007.

The poem's title caught my eye mostly because I walk up and down Dixon Steps everyday. The poem is short and sweet, and it enticed me to read more of Airini's poems. It is the first poem in Twenty-three Love Poems, all of which I enjoyed and I hope you enjoy too.
