I MET A MAN 1

I met a man
The kind of man you make a fool out of yourself for
One that makes you quake your house
For its emptiness without him
The kind of man you can’t just be friends with
If you can’t have whole of him,
And better you don’t get any of him
A man that makes you feel Spanish and Latino
Whose silence of words cements your heart
And makes you laugh like a little child

I met a man
A dream that pursed reality
Snow white dental
A giraffe’s neck, wide shoulders
Broad chest enough for a lovely pillow
Lovely voice that made my ribs crack
I wanted to here him speak
But was afraid of the pain
