a poem a day for a year #279

reviewing the online dating pool
my dear friend shared with me
her profile and the emails she receives
match maker cupid baby do it all night
this is who I am
who are you
let's make a connection
I'm a millionaire
I can do this
athletic build
my ass
I want to share things with you
I'm up for anything
social drinker means a lot of things
and I was breathless
at the state of so many hearts
in disarray
the photographs so forced
smiles like grimaces
I told her to go to the bar
the library
the supermarket
and just look available
just look like love
wear her heart on her sleeve
and sing it sweetly
