Accepted by Concise Delight

I wrote this poem in college after a string of unpleasant dating experiences. This poem was actually accepted by __Concise Delight__, a very nice poetry magazine.


Pedestal

After I have shaved and deodorized and sprayed with perfume,
And wiped away all the traces of my humanity,
Then we can go and dance the night away,
Believing we are in love,
And you can enjoy the image of me,
Without the disgust of my humanity.
