She’s Not Impressed - Poem by Esmond Jones

I’ve well and truly botched my laundry up:
I’ve shrunk my shirts in water far too hot -
the cuffs are flapping halfway up my arms.

Each time my chest expands-when she walks past,
she catches one more button with an ear.
As days go by she’s getting more aware,
and ducks before I’ve time to catch my breath.

I see my chances dwindle more and more,
she’s not importing any interest -
unless of course she’s playing hard to get.
