A Shitty Day's Redemption - Poem by Rev. Dr. A. Jacob Hassler

nothing makes a lousy day better
than seeing a sexy woman at the
convenience store
in her office attire with her white
half-sweater buttoned snugly around her breasts
and her black hair pulled back, her
face barely creased with the lines of experience,
but still retaining the glow of her youth
perhaps she is there on her lunch break,
choosing between the
chocolate chip cookies and
the granola bars as her perfume
drifts lazily down the aisle

she strides around the shop
confidently, silently demanding the
attention of every man in the room
her every curve jiggling slightly
as if she were shaking off their
wanton eyes
i almost want to shake my awe and
walk right up to her to thank her
for redeeming the morning’s thankless
wasted hours and reminding me
just why i woke up in the first place

    First time I read this poem for amusement - but you've caught the whole atmosphere of the moment perfectly. Not a word out of place. (Report)Reply
