A Wholesome Guy

by vexations

Each night she pretends
a wholesome guy
will shuffle alongside
on the sidewalk and
gently bump her shoulder.

Wholesome guy’s are
good in the morning
like high-fiber granola,
and easy on the eyes
with rumpled curls
resting against
eyes void of blood lines.

A wholesome fellow
knows what he wants −
her.

Her wholesome guy’s
adorned with blue denim
and passion spilling from
his crotch.

Her wholesome lover
lights candles on her birthday;
burns his way into her heart.

As they grow old together
she becomes his memory
while his memories are sprinkled
with pictures
of her beauty.

I really enjoyed your Wholesome Guy - Each verse has such a visual perspective; some have quite memorable zingers, as well. From beginning to end, truly a great read. Best wishes, Mary Ann

If wishes were horses, beggars would ride. A self- centered ironic wish for an ideal the women in this piece wishes for but probably won't get, for she won't settle for less. Provocative, well written piece.
