Missed Connection

Were you the girl

in the blue two piece suit

with the lovely chequered scarf

on the A414

near Alvechurch?

I've always been a sucker

for a girl in uniform

and that's more the norm than not

though I've always wondered if a het girl

has the same kick for a man in uniform

the TV shows make cliches of.

When I met you my heart stopped

for just a moment. Not

because you were beautiful

(you are)

or because you wore a uniform

(you did)

or you had an awesome scar

from cheekbone to lip

(it only enhanced your attractiveness)

You were admiring my overweight corgi

and I had a bag of shit in my hand.
