POET…AFTER (A) FASHION!

He calls himself “fashion poet”,

One or two others know it…

In pursuits

Avoiding lawsuits,

He certainly doesn’t want to blow it!

Him being man and all,

Must carefully judge his call…

With less passion

Than stereotypical fashion,

Not being the Beast at the ball.

Gender matters to him,

Especially if women…

They’re the kind

He most has in mind,

Do they mind if he tiptoes in?

LAUNCHING WORDS, SHIPS, PINK-COLORED SLIPS

LAUNCHING WORDS, SHIPS, PINK-COLORED SLIPS

A face that truly inspires,

Greed and avarice fires…

Dressed up nice

But cold as ice,

Does she care about what transpires?

Often idols are kept

Away from those who have wept…

A picture that’s true

Reality, will it do?

For those whose souls have left?

Women dressed up and admired,

No control over what transpired….

Men use romance

Justifying advance,

After brutally acquired.

(A different side of the coin, perhaps?)

JUST BUSINESS…

JUST BUSINESS…

Often wanted to explain

To “friends” why I’ve refrained…

From poem sharing

Few seem to be caring,

For them is it properly framed?

Certain favorites–I wonder–

Should I explain my blunder…

I can’t implore,

Not allowed any more,

My business has gone under!

My favorite work redhead

Explained it when she said…

It’s not by feeling–

Just a business dealing–

She accepted it as she said.

But still I want to explain,

A final ego gesture of the vain…?

I’m ordered to not,

Despite feelings I’ve got,

I poured my chances down the drain!
