He lost his pretend friend,

Their relationship had to end…

Now he is looking

At who is cooking,

Another with whom to pretend.

Another redhead–he thinks,

As at a brunette he winks…

The unattainable

His fanciful

Object to dream instincts.

The problem with fantasy lovers

Is dealing with them when uncovered…

Embarrassing times

Paying for lines

Spoken unguarded to others!

Better stay with the woman you’d got,

That, anyway, is my lot…

But tendencies to

Think things one might rue,

Warn of being put on the spot.

–Jonathan Caswell
