Date

Our first and last date.
The wind blew.
I didn't.

A not-quite haiku inspired by Marilyn Chin.  For Grace's prompt at Real Toads.

Well, a girl's gotta have standards, you know.

A perfect Chin! She doesn't mince words, and neither do you.

You are so clever, MZ. I've had a hard time with this poet. You didn't--in more ways than one. k.

From what I recall of dating, it doesn't matter if you blow him or not. There's still probably not going to be a second date. In fact, I don't even remember many first dates. Mostly just hanging out with friends in groups and then sneaking off alone to do what I perceived as getting some attention which I was desperate for, and what he perceived as getting some. Men suck. So do women. Just in different ways.
