Suggestions by Alan Catlin

She was
one of those
hard cool women
who checks
you out
for size
below the
waist while
You’re asking
her what it
might be you’d
like tonight?
She kind of looks
you in the eye
says real slow
and deliberate
“I don’t think
you’ve got
what it takes
to make what
I want
suggest something
new and different”
She thinks a
hop skip and
go naked has a
real ring to it
but she wants
to know what goes
in it first
