You’ll Know What to Do This Time

Personal ad
paid for in cash.

To the guy wearing a blue hoodie:
last chance
and not a dime more
I’m glad we met

really is long enough.
But I’ll let you decide.

Serious replies only.

    • Yes, you know I feel the same way about this poem. I do love a bit of intrigue to start things off in the imagination. I also like the oblique newspaper reference, since I have a loyalty to the newspaper print form from child hood up to my son and daughter in law being in journalism, and I well remember when personal ad columns were intriguing glimpses into hidden worlds.
