In the elementary particle mood for romance

Symmetry Magazine did a competition with Valentine poems. I’m currently not into Haikus, so mine are limericks. These were my romantic takes:

When making a pass, our Higgs boson,
at a cute bonnie lass little photon
she yelled: “off with your mass,
or I’ll get a fat ass.
And my point-like appearance is all gone”

Which led me to another scene at the bar:

The drunk male physicist said wry
looking the female string theorist in the eye
“Tell me why to digress
what you tell is pointless”
“That’s right”, said the string theorist dry

But, then again, maybe a Haiku or two would have been better.
