Trends (Draft 1)


It makes me so sad
when I’ve missed so many trends

When women’s liberation happened
I thought she would ask me out

But I was just a pig. No not,
I’m just trying to have an image
that the guys will not ridicule, but

yet the girls will find better:
the super sensitive chic
and macho too; I need guns
and flowers I suppose:
I don’t know what pose
I must have

I would rather speak my silliness
than die to the conformity
of never knowing and no one
even an intimate she
truly loving me.
