better bait

late one evening

thinking over mistakes made

as young men tend to over do

tried compiling a list

for the perfect woman

I’d love to fall in love with

its still there

in a box in the attic

gathering dust as

unspent desires do

hair, clothes, attitude

included in this incomplete catalogue

got halfway down the page

maybe two thirds

of this wishing list

& the thought struck deep

maybe I need try

being better bait

first
