My Next Lover

My next lover

will be an old soul

strolling with Sinatra  and Morrison hand in hand.

He’ll eat thick fat steaks medium rare with

only salt and pepper.

Not always polite, but always kind he will laugh when I trip over the top step.

And then his hand  will grab my wrist.

He will be ardent and authentic,

as we laugh at pictures of cats, and the old people in

the mirror whose shape has been rounded

by half a century of  devouring passion.

We’ll listen to the  music and dance on

the waves,  and he won’t be afraid of  chasing

the randomness of the ripples of sound.

Because in time, we’ve heard it all.
