Pamper-Her-Friday by Rg2® 396: ‘The Romantic Panther’ A Post-Valentine Ask: The Romantic Valentine Collection by Rg2 (38)


“The Romantic Panther”

Admit it, woman: Wednesday was rather meh
The flowers arrived like clockwork—a nice thought,
The question, however, just won’t dissipate:
Are you in love? Or was that all for naught?

Only you can answer the uncomfortable question
The Friday after Valentine’s is an inconvenient truth,
You wanna go out to spark the three-day weekend
But seeing him again is getting long in the tooth

Are you obligated? You the lock and he the key?
Is yours, tonight, an unenviable dilemma?
I suggest you call in sick and come with me
Thai food and then Black Panther at the cinema

The twist: An intimate, private screening for two
I’m taking you to Wakanda, girl, just you and I,
A cache of vibranium will soon be your possession
We’re going beyond VR glasses over the eye

The theatre grows a little chilly in its darkness
No worries, I brought a blanket to cover your lap,
The Stella Rose black stem will be at your fingertips
To request a refresher? On the armrest simply tap

The comfort you’ll feel won’t be by happenstance
Woman, you’ve harbored me long…kinda like a song,
The soundtrack to the tribal freedom fighters on screen
Even the most noble super hero is in the wrong

If he treats his woman sans traditional virtue
You’re much more than an ephemeral Valentine,
Go ahead, rest your pretty head on my shoulder
Yes, we’ve long been on the other’s mind

Here, open this envelope as the credits roll
The contents? Disney stock certificates in your name,
The Panther and Marvel are properties of Mickey
Love, we, too, can win in this investment game

But a player I’m not, woman, I’ve had my run
I just want to hold your hand at the movie, if I may,
We can’t bring the 14th back but tonight is beautiful
Can I kiss you like a Valentine . . . on Pamper-Her-Friday?



Pamper the woman . . . like a forever Valentine. -Rg2

Pamper-Her-Friday by Rg2® 395: ‘Bare Feet and Prosecco’ A Valentine Ask: The Romantic Valentine Collection by Rg2 (37) Vol. VI


“Bare Feet and Prosecco”

Seldom have I wondered what may inhabit
a woman’s mind as mid-February approaches,
A race between anxiety and anticipation
Susceptible might you be as love encroaches

Your don’t-let-him-get-close comfort zone
Flowers are trivial, chocolates melt away,
What’s love got to do with it, you ask yourself
Isn’t it just another e-commerce day?

An edible arrangement atop your desk;
A Cartier box in signature powder-blue hue;
Sunset reservations for your favored bistro . . .
Are a sample of the things a thoughtful man can do

Let’s take it a step further and get outta dodge
Run away with me, woman, in the spirit of elope,
A getaway to an isle by whose waters we’ll lodge
This shy, poetic and romantic misanthrope . . .

. . . is asking for your hand while blue waters and sand
are backdrop to a lone table dressed in white,
Dinner in bare feet with Prosecco semi-sweet
To you would be my honor this poem to recite:

Were the end of my days imminently near
The second to the last with you shall I dine,
As the moon gives way to final midnight clear
My destiny is defined by your acceptance of mine

Should Wednesday, untenable the day, not work
We’ll delay our rendezvous—post-holiday,
So determined am I to win your heart
My romance is even sweeter on Pamper-Her-Friday

Will you be my Valentine?



Pamper the woman . . . and forever live in her soul. -Rg2

Romance by Rg2®: ‘Memo to Sanaa Valentine’: The Romantic Valentine Collection by Rg2 (36) Vol. VI


February 2, 2018

PRIVATE MEMO TO: Ms. Sanaa Valentine

FROM: R. Greer II

RE: The Market Correction

The world’s not coming to an end, Sanaa, despite the 600-point drop in the Dow yesterday. I truly appreciate your thanking me for the fair warning I gave a few weeks ago regarding the frothiness of the stock market and the Bitcoin mania. And I thank you for taking heed and liquidating your holdings accordingly.

The breathtaking Obama 10-year stock market run is officially over. The recent tax cuts have got to be paid for and history says that doesn’t bode well for wage earners. Rising interest rates will further deflate the equities market. I’ll still monitor the markets for solid companies that will prosper in spite of the coming downturn—after all, there’s always a bull market somewhere.

Should the Trump administration get the massive infrastructure-spending bill through Congress, many industrial, engineering, some tech and related-services companies will benefit handsomely. Unfortunately, most of the companies have already reached—in many cases surpassed—their 52-week highs, so there’s not much lift to profit from as an investor. I’ll do my due diligence going forward.

Meanwhile, liquid savings will be akin to gold going forward. Some say “gold” itself is the investment to hold when the markets downturn and geo-political instability arises. There’s something to that. But I don’t wholly subscribe to the thought. After all, one can’t very well “eat” gold, can one?

Again, congratulations on your market winners. Do me a favor, would you? Put your profits away in a safe place . . . for a rainy day. The market’s been good to me as well, and what good is a profit if not shared with a beautiful woman?

I was just wondering, uh, well, it’s unseasonably warm here on the west coast for this time of year. What are your thoughts on a picnic . . . a Valentine picnic?

That is, if you don’t yet have a Valentine. Do you?

Tender are my thoughts,


A Valentine Romance lives. -Rg2

Pamper-Her-Friday by Rg2® 394: ‘Black-Girl Magic Needs Romance’ A Valentine Ask: The Romantic Valentine Collection by Rg2 (35) Vol. VI


“Black-Girl Magic Needs Romance”
Was it last year that you attended
a singles’ concert for that special occasion?
With all your girlfriends entouraged
Woman, you managed a romantic evasion
There was laughter and myriad girl-banter
And skinny-olive martinis galore,
The stage performer, oh, was he sexy
Though quietly you wanted a little more
In fact your craving was quite different
If your truth were to be truthfully told,
Your mind escaped that hot, sweaty venue
and ventured into the winter night’s cold
Of February was your heart contrary
Though black-girl magic is truly real,
Mocha-man mystique: there’s something to it
Can I share with you how heavenly it feels?
Give me the day or give me the night
Let me take you into the California breeze,
The lush viewscapes of the desert valley
Into my company your virgin heart shall ease
An exquisite table, something like a fable
You may even question your very own eyes,
Let your hair down, we’ll be in nature’s sound
As we sip bubbly beneath the Pacific skies
You want a man at full attention, don’t you?
Tell me your romantic story, I’m all ears,
I’ll be the interviewer; you, the interviewee
Our time will only grow better as sunset nears
A black knight in shiny, romantic armor? Fiction
Yet in every fiction lies a grain of truth,
To hell with what your girlfriends said last year
Woman, I write this ask because I’m your proof
That romance still lives in the heart of a man
Right here, right now, woman, I’m your Valentine,
If you feel me within, somewhere within your heart
Then tell me, I need you to say you’ll be mine…
Say it.
Woman, say it….
Romance lives. -Rg2

Romance by Rg2®: ‘The Substance of Her Sigh’ A Valentine Read by Rg2


“The Substance of Her Sigh”


Will you read to me? Never has a man read to me, she asks of him. A random page he turns. One write in particular catches his eye:

The florists’ business is brisk
The chocolatiers are filled with glee,
Their coffers could I enhance,
But I’ve bottled my poetry

Liquid lust I might have poured
A message may’ve it contained,
But my romance runs much deeper
than a momentary refrain

A customary bouquet I’ll send
Your favorite nuts and chews,
Though they pale in comparison
to this inkling you can’t refuse

That knowing twinkle in your eye
The helpless quiver along your thigh,
The ceaseless burning in your yearning
Am I the substance of your sigh?


Her eyes still shut, she sinks deeper into his lap.

She’s his.

The woman’s all his.


Romance lives. -Rg2

Pamper-Her-Friday by Rg2® 393: ‘I, Too’ A Love Note: The Romantic Valentine Collection by Rg2 (34) Vol. VI


“I, Too”

Instinct tells me you haven’t made plans for Valentine’s
Perhaps mine is a bit premature the thought,
I, too, haven’t set the coming date in stone
What a shame it would be if we both were caught

By the eye of others, the ask of another
You may find a reluctance to turn it down,
Propositions, woman, they come and they go
You’re worthy of a romantic night on the town

That defies the impress-her cult of commerce
Chocolate hearts and champagne simply for the sake,
Paired with a violinist strumming an Rg2 verse?
Now that spells the inklings of enchantment we’ll make

If it’s all in my mind, call me the pamper-her kind
But I sense something within you that we share,
Unaware of your silent yearning? Of course not
I, too, feel this yen, woman, it’s in the air

Instinct tells me you haven’t made plans for Valentine’s
Perhaps my imagination is but a premature thought,
But I, too, haven’t written anything down in ink
Might I be the handsome asker you’ve silently sought…







Pamper the woman . . . and forever live in her soul. -Rg2

Pamper-Her-Friday by Rg2® 392: ‘Five Hundred Love Letters’: Resolution in Verse by Rg2


“Five Hundred Love Letters”

. . . Nor rain, nor sleet, nor frost . . . 
in no way,
Would any element discourage me
from Pamper-Her-Friday

With you near me, so dear to me
Woman, please hear me,
Your voice, its cadence
last midnight so clearly

it nestled in my ear
to begin this new year,
This purpose-driven writer
remains untempted to veer

From the very thought of you
Mind demons, I’ve wrestled a few
Lost my way in that winter storm
My compass to you remains true

Five hundred love letters
I’m determined the next one’s better
Your shoulders may shiver, but I will deliver
Woman, I am your heart-setter

No matter the season,
Nor the weather

Nor rain, nor sleet, nor hail . . .
in no way,
Would winter’s elements keep me
from a Pamper-Her-Friday

With you.

On my way . . .

By sleigh.



Pamper the woman . . . and forever live in her soul. -Rg2
