I’m at my chiropractor’s office when
I see this list of men’s heights
And weights. It’s not a strange
sight to see in his office, but
When I stop and think of the thought,
What comes back for me is, desirable
For what? I mean if you’re going
Dancing you might not want a fat slob.
Or skiing, you might prefer someone
Who knows how to ski and not
Someone who looks good in
The outfit. Of course I knew that.
But I couldn’t resist the temptation
To point it out. But I mean desirous
Is such a loaded word. People are
Always attracted to what they
Desire, even a streetcar. As old
As I am, desire still gets a look or two
From me and don’t say I’m too old.
