Building the Perfect Man

Wine is chilled
table set
girls night
time together
to reconnect
to laugh
to build the perfect man.
Mad scientists.
Frankenstein
rebuilt here
retouched there
cackles of laughter
shrieks of delight
as he begins to form
such is their fun.
Dash of romance.Β 
(Only a little though
modern women that they are)
Splash of dominance.
(Enough…..
just enough
to invoke a frisson of lust)
Listen with half an ear.
Encouraging.
Respectful.
Humor.
Crank up the switch.
Lightening crackles
energy slashes through.
Spasms.
Groaning…..
it?
he?
sits up
looking around
eyes alighting upon his creators.
With wicked intent
bated breath
they wait to hear his first words
this fabulous man
built to spec.
What would he say?
What could he say?
Mouth open.
Soundless.
Dumbfounded they are
until they realize why…..
They neglected to give him a voice.

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.
