I always wanted a man tall, dark, and... poetic

by Bradd Howard

an exaggerated eyebrow arch
brooding lips
a drunken stance

a man who would beat the shit out of anyone
who looked at me sideways
but who would only look at me out of the corners of his eyes

smoke filled nostrils
passion blinded eyes

A man who would wipe the eyelash off my cheek
and blow it away gently.

sneering at me the entire time.


Author's Note: this was a hurried poem for wes... so I wouldn't have to face his wrath...

Whoa, that's some wrath, Bradd. Plenty of angry visions in here as you intended. Well written. :)

Are you taking applications or conducting interviews?
