I surely do admire the attitude
meat on the bones
carriage, courage
and overall live physical presence
of women not my wife

I tell my wife all about it
she laughs at me
aims a big spoon at me in the kitchen
and narrows her eyes

things are good that night

so if next morning
I feel a glow of carnal appreciation
towards other women I surely do admire
their attitude
meat on the bones
carriage, courage
and overall live physical presence

please accept
my intrusive radar
my expansive benevolence
rushing up earnest
and innocent
as waves on a beach
