Looking for a Man

from Samantha Says by The Chairman Dances



Charlie pours another glass.
Is it our third or our forth?
It numbs the pain and keeps the conversation on its course.

Charlie asks me do I think
From time to time of our love.
I mutter “Yes, dear” and call on every last saint above.

I'm looking for a man
About 5'9"
About my size
With a generous heart.

I'm looking for a man
Around 135
Waist size 30
Who's generous with his time.

I go looking through the closets
And under shelves of soft porn and bulk ammunition
I find pictures of us creased and torn.

And those gifts my mother gave us
And the poems I write, you've hid from the guests.
I find them tied and placed beneath the light.

I would surely settle
For some boring but nice guy
With manners and insurance
Or something resembling a plan.

I would surely settle down
In a suburb of Cleveland
If it meant that I could be myself
For just part of the day.

I'm looking for a man
Around 135
But I'm not picky
If he’s generous with his time.
