Even in my weakened Washington State
I can feel my words working
3,000 miles away,
while I lay in bed
not doing much of anything, in Florida.
a tired anger
clings to her, like yesterday’s sleep
like the baby, she never had
She can’t give this one away
even though she tries
it’s her anger baby
made that way
by men not living up to her expectations
the kind that shouts, and walks before its 1.
She has lost
while she pursues men
who run for the hills.
I don’t talk to many old men
but when I do
it seems like
they don’t take their women that seriously
They live with them
but it’s no big deal.
If a man hasn’t settled down by 36
he’s not going to.
The women out there, are crazy
The only difference is…
today’s women, can do something about it—
and that’s scary.
Unmarried men after 36, will never get married
they’ve had too much time to think about it.
how many things did you do in your life
without thinking about it?
Or maybe, you weren’t sure, so you asked somebody else to think about it for you
and they told you
what somebody else told them.
Frankly, most people can’t make decisions
but Frank can
I asked him about marriage on the golf course, Yesterday
and he laughed
“Do you think I’m insane? Naw—I’ve got a girlfriend, but I don’t live with her
that’s for the other kind of man.”
“Don’t you get lonely?”
“Hell, no! I visit, and then I go home and sleep. Most of the problems of men could be resolved, if they got rid of their women.”
“That doesn’t sound true.”
“It is. A woman has a way of making something inconsequential matter to her, and if you don’t see it that way, you’re in trouble man.”
“And you’re happy?”
“Sure I am.”
“But what about the normal life?”
“Well—this is what I’ve decided to do.”
