The Angel

photo from

Terrific body, I particularly like
The rear view, neat bum, great calves,
Smooth curve from skull base to nape neck,
Which I long to stroke,
But he is too high above me.
From the front I swear he is smiling,
Not the 'Aren't I gorgeous?  I love myself.'
More the, 'Hey honey, you look great.'
But his rigid arms stretch too wide,
He will never embrace me.
I shelter behind his ankle
From the biting northeast wind.
