Rules of Attraction

Posted in poems tagged , , , , , , , , at 2:31 am by Mark

The sensation of fixation
Makes the object of errant sideways looks
A person with hopes of future talks.
After drinks are gone, courage replaces
Morés and small talk with gross advances.
Sobriety is recommended here.
Flirting and compliments should lead the way,
Self-deferential humor always wins.
What is easier? What’s safer for you?
A harsh system of conjugal visits
To predict a new partner’s potential
Compatibility. Sex rules the start,
When consummation of love
Should just be another length
Of the journey to enrich
Both your souls.
