About the Poem
A description of what may be wanted in a man - expectations, hopes. Personal details that I have shared with my man, Joe.
|by Anne Clarity|
A man - a single man with the ability to
change your entire life,
With his scratchy voice
that rakes over scores and song
along side your white fenced lawn
right after dinner.
With his worn hands
that have worked fourteen hours
at the local dock hauling lobster crates
all summer long before
coming to you.
A man - God's most beloved creation,
not a simple beast with hair, skin, organs -
no a glorious creation, this man.
Someone who holds your hand
all through your annual dentist appointments
with Dr. Dunkleberger,
Someone who makes you laugh
after a visit to La Salle Street -
you're mother - can be such a bitch!
Someone who comes to your bed
not asking for anything but only to hold you
and kiss you good night,
This man - who can change your life
with such a simple request,
and he does.
