RED HAIRED GIRL

I accepted
I did not surrender
gave up no ground
simply let you tiptoe
with someone else
There were kidney stones to pass
laundry to do
Beds to be made ready
when the dallying was through

I never DID intend
to brood
Wait on you
like Charlies
red-haired girl
I am that
Middleaged
Accidentally I assure you

Shut me up
quench my want
Lead me to
the salty remnants
of lust
She wouldn’t lick up
If I ask nice
would you tell me
what to do
?
