My Wants

My wants are simple:
a job that I like and a guy whom I love.

And on the eve of my thirtieth,
I must face that I am 0 for 2.

-go off duty

-We got it covered.

-Lying has never been my strong suit.

-well-wishers

-manage to put on a good front.

I loved our Saturday-night trips to Colonial Ice Cream,
where we always ordered the same thing-
one turtle sundae, one Snickers pie, one double-chocolate brownie-
and then split them among us.
***
In fact, I am suddenly very hungry.
I find my menus and call to order a hamburger with cheddar and fries.
Guess I won't be losing five pounds before Memorial day.

I hit redial on my phone and add a large chocolate milk shake to my order.
