Stale Mate

O bland Adonis
she fell for his
six-pack abdomis

Movie and dinner
proffered he
with smiles sure
to swoon every she

Milk-toast he
turned out to be
with rippling
curls his brains

A second date?
No enspicement
such a flavorless fate
tempted she!

  1. You’ve made me chuckle at 9 o’clock on a Tuesday morning, Jilly, with the ‘six-pack abdomis’ and
    the brains unfurling with ‘rippling curls’. And ‘enspicement’ is another word to add to my collection!

  2. LOVE the title here…and this really made me smile! Thinking of those high school boys I so admired, the captains of the football team….and then you see them at the 50th reunion and….:) Yep. Milk toast 🙂 This was a fun one!
