Chapter 216: A Circus Valentine

"Not a red rose or a satin heart. 

I give you an onion. 
It is a moon wrapped in brown paper. 
It promises light
like the careful undressing of love. 

It will blind you with tears
like a lover. 
It will make your reflection a wobbling photo of grief.

I am trying to be truthful. 

Not a cute card or a kissogram.

I give you an onion. 
Its fierce kiss will stay on your lips,
possessive and faithful
as we are, 
for as long as we are. 

Take it. 
Its platinum loops shrink to a wedding ring, 
if you like. 
Its scent will cling to your fingers, 
cling to your knife. 

Valentine,   by  Carol Ann Duffy

  1. Mostly all the escorts are available online for booking. You can select and book them as per you convenience and availability. Either you can go to meet the Karachi Escorts in 5 star hotels or the girl with reach out to your place. Since Pakkistan is a metro city it has urbanized way ahead of other small cities in Pakistan.Escorts in Karachi mainly focused about the tourist but that does not imply they do not deal with local people.
