Your Profile Pics Are A Lot Older Than You Let On by John Doyle

She’s too skinny, smokes like a sailor, doesn’t like to dress up,
that’s what he saw as his hopes sank,
through hallowed fag-smoke rings,

he’s too pudgy, shirt sticking out, never a drop of booze
would say no to his lips, that’s what she saw,
cigarette smoke kissing air in wild abandon –

at a smudged-glass table
toes tinkled shins,
the zero-sum game firing-up its pistons…

John Doyle Bio: The only good bio is a bio strung-up outside some gold-prospector’s wooden shack with his dog Jake sniffing at its last remaining remnants of sanguine flesh; So I will keep it simple, I’m from County Kildare, Ireland, and I love nothing more than stumbling across 3rd Division football games in Slovenia or Belgium on a Sunday morning as a welcome interlude while trying outsmart fellow bio hunters.
