A Love Poem

written by: Thomas Park

"My humps". My bumps.
The poem, a tease
Erotic words, turns of phrase
Underneath photo
Of young photogene

Post-structure, vague of rhyme
Professor wrinkled nose
At seductive lines

Schoolgirl fantasy

To your credit, Ms. Appleby,
34 26 34 nymph
You are not
Nor have ever been

But 48-year old retail employee
Tired from lengthy shift
Eyes a bit baggy

Lonely as a bird in the desert
Love (or lust) should be your dessert

Never mind the bachelor degree
Tempo, rhythm, analogy

Use the word to find a man
Attract a mate
Ignore the mind
