You of green eyes and long hair.
Why can’t you help me
with my household tasks
become my personal assistant
my housekeeper, my consort?
Don’t forget the laundry!
Shop, cook, handle my calendar
wipe dishes, floors, type for me too.
O Muse marry me, gratifying all
my amorous needs. Especially my
sexual wants…fulfilling all my fantasies.
Be awesome. Take me to some posh
restaurants. Let’s do something flamboyant
after jetting to fine cultural activities.
Instantly google all my queries.
Don’t forget to publish me worldwide
in hardcover, paperback, electronically
after procuring excellent translators.
Find some adoring relatives, perhaps
plan an intergalactic extravaganza?
