Poem: Advertising For A Lover 

Today I place myself
on the seller’s bloc
of cyberspace.
60-year-old woman
—looks 60—
seeks partner.
Can sing, dance
and play the cooking-pot drum;
can make a meal from
a can of peas
3 black olives
and the Sunday funnies.
Former Enchantress.
coffee drinker, troublemaker
laughs readily,
eavesdropper, teller of bedtime
stories.
likes an honest fight.
longstanding lover of
primal things—llanos, tundra, savannah,
hailstorm,
Chinook wind,
downpour,
ice age,
storms that threaten to cleanse
your life,
meteors traveling through the night sky,
reflections of light
on broken faces. . .

. . . Did I mention
I can sing?
