Advantages Taken

Times like this require courage

Split-second decisions, accuracy

A keen eye and a subtle smile

Take notice to the time

And when it’s right

Take full advantage

Of the girl not paying attention

Motion to the bartender

Order a drink

And skip her in line

A Letter

I sat down to write a letter

I didn’t have to

But I did it anyway

You’re such a pretty girl, I wrote

I’ve fallen for so much of you

Your hair, long and brown

Your eyes, the deepest blue

These line went on for some time

I rattled off the many ways I loved her

I wrote about her perfect body

Her saint-like demeanor

All her motherly ways

Oh so many ways I loved her

I wrote for hours

Hours turned to days

And when I finished

I addressed the envelope

Stamped it

And walked it to the box

Give or take a couple of days and it arrived

When it did

It was opened

And because now I know

What a bitch you turned out to be

I’m glad I decided to mail it to myself
