Not There Poem by William Kofoed

Not There



In morning light
shining so bright
in warming air
and gentle breeze

as I did go
on morning errand
my eyes did a light
on a intriguing sight

feminine form
soft full curves
attired so best
to be displayed

full rounded curves
barely contained
their movement did
so catch my eye

swaying hips
and legs so long
a face that said
she could be mine

an arm reached out
with casual air
as if to say
nothing was there

the hand did hold
the handle of
the stroller in which
a baby laid

somehow I knew
and was quite sure
the child was hers
a lesson unlearned

that she did seek
another man
to lay with
and seek joy

and I did
continue by
with shaking head
and sad smile
