Shopping Spree – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

5 lines – Shopping




“I’ve been dating since I was fifteen. I’m exhausted. Where is he?”  Kristin Davis


Shopping Spree

Two-toned, big boned, large lips,
small nation ego no less, shallow,
beer gut, skinny ribs, twinkle toes,
halitosis roulette on a long credit line,
dating so many faces without result.

  3. My daughter participated in speed-dating at one point. All I could do was scratch my head and ask why.

  4. I fashioned this for this season of bargain dating which there is always a chain of reactions.🤔

  5. Being from another culture this always disturbs me.
    I see more psycological problems than just fun.
