I was reading a poetry collection last week called Dying Old and Dying Young, by Susan Williams, and I got a kick out of her poem, “Personals.”
It got me thinking about what we look for in people, and I thought I’d try my hand at a personals-style list poem, too. I had planned to spend more time on it, but a day full of appointments yesterday and a mini-anxiety attack over wardrobe (thanks for all the good fashion advice!) left me with just a second draft so far. It was fun to think about this in a Making Mr. Right kind of way (love that movie). Only considering me, me, me and not the compromise of a real relationship. Just a list of what I want! OK, here goes.
