New Poem: “More Dates for Kay (1952)” by Annette C. Boehm

New poem by yours truly over at Romcompom! And I highly recommend browsing through their collection of Romantic Comedy Poetry.


More Dates for Kay (1952)

I’ve had my share of dating
slumps. Every girl has them!
Now is the time to invest
in good underarm deodorant.
Brush those teeth harder.
Whiten them with berries.
Drop the weight
of your books, quite accidentally
as a boy passes. Pretend physics
are beyond you:
the calculations of distance,
force, impact, resistance.
Before he arrives
make sure you look sharp,
make sure you have sharpened
your pencils, your axe.

Annette C. Boehm‘s chapbook The Five Part of Love – Confabulating Sappho is available from Dancing Girl Press and she is a poetry reader for Memorious: a Journal of New Verse and Fiction. She blogs at Her favorite RomComs are Annie Hall, The Graduate, and Four Weddings and a Funeral.
