Oh Girl

by George Hoerner

has it started already
a few words and
i chase you away

or are you far more
busy than i assumed
have you figured out
what assume means

many years ago
one of my supervisors
said that assume spells
what it means
it “makes an ass
of you and me”

so many of my
dealings with women
have started and
ended this way

i start out all
too enthused
and end up
loosing a friend

but of course
as with most
men they all
want something
closer than
is being offered

Oh, the familiar ponderings of relationships that could be...might be...maybe someday(s)...so well portrayed here...

Women are not so fearful of what poets concoct in the mind but rather what they have brewing in the heart's distillery. An elixir at once divine and intoxicating.

Oh how this rings familiar and true. Nicely done.
