Original Poems

MIssed Connection

He liked her
And she liked him
But —

She was afraid
Of being used physically
By a man
Who wasn’t really interested in her
Emotionally.
She thought:
That’s just what men do

He was afraid
Of being used emotionally
By a woman
Who wasn’t really interested in him
Physically.
He thought:
That’s just what women do

And they each interpreted the other’s actions
As proving their own theories

Even though they both liked each other
Physically
And
Emotionally

Breaking Stereotypes: Men and Commitment

Sunset on the Beach

I think it is herein worthwhile
To say: I’m a commitmentphile
Commitmentphobes get all the press
Especially, when male

But some of us, I can affirm
Don’t mind committing longer-term
And find in limits, nonetheless
Economies of scale
