The Women I Love

Published by RBIBEAU | Tuesday, March 06, 2018 8:36 PM


Women - My favorite subject - Mahalo to all women who have added color to my comic book life. 100 words are insufficient.


The Women I love

One is a widow who closes her eyes.
One makes love with fractured English.
One talks in her sleep with foreign tongues.
One mistook me for a sane man.
One is divorced for too long.
One is married to a grumpy groundskeeper.

The other ran away with a gypsy.
Another is too far away to remember my age.

The rest are all born again virgins
who laugh when I make a pass.

They are my afternoon lovers
who leave their luggage in the hallway
while smiling, drinking, and smoking with dreamy eyes
remembering of a time when it all mattered.
