NOW THAT I’VE FOUND THEM…!

He recently hesitated

Giving time to the younger as stated…

He’s found one or two

Older women viewed,

Wants to emphasize he’s already mated!

Admiring pant suits and dresses,

He’s not after romantic stresses…

But sincerely

He’s looking to see,

Style in clothes and tresses!

I wonder if  women stand

Fashion poetry by a man…

A man who looks

For narrative hooks,

Sometimes upon demand?

–Jonathan Caswell

IF WRITTEN BY A WOMAN…?

If a woman wrote to complain,

She hated to feel his touch…

He’d hurt deeply a long time ago

And she’d take only so much.

It’s like her arm was imprisoned,

His arm pushing hers down…

Sitting close to barely breathe–

As hurt thoughts jumble around.

Been a long time since they were close,

Her buried arm hurt more…

If these feelings came from a man

Would his openness be ignored?
