She came around

wearing a pink miniskirt

and bright red lipstick

that reeked sexiness


She told me all about

her boyfriend of 5 years

and what a disappointment

he’s become and that

she’s looking for a real man

but doesn’t know where to start


so I tell her

in a low voice

that I ain’t

the one

she’s looking for—


to be totally flabbergasted

when she says

she knows that already

and doesn’t want me at all

and never has


I look at her firm tits

and tight ass

and “Bitch!” is the first word

that comes to mind

but I bite my tongue

to keep it from expressing itself


tis a shame

I think

and her blue eyes

contradict her convictions

but I let it pass

for better or worse


It ain’t the time

or the place

for anything to happen


I watch her tight ass

swaying toward the door

and she turns to me

and says “Thank you.”


Though God only knows
what the Hell

she’s thanking me for.

I experienced something like that, most recently in 1992, and the memory still stings just a bit.  I think it happens far more than any of us really imagine.

We all have certain regrets

We all have certain regrets that haunt us.  That is part of the human tragedy/comedy.  If we ever learned things would get mighty boring.
