To Beckon a Perfect Lover
Laura LeHew


know that it is time
rip up your wish list
be gone illustrious white knights–
unredeemable damaged beyond repair types
unlock the possibility


cop an attitude
dress to your best asset
add a touch of leather
remove one article of clothing
go unfurled into the world


invade his personal space
hold eye contact
whisper a question
touch your would-be lover on his shoulder
fold him into you
