Hard to Get

She didn’t know
the meaning
of playing
hard to get,

Teasing, cajoling
displaying her
come to me finger


It takes
strength of conviction
absolute control
of feeling and emotions
stone-faced resilience

All fine qualities
none of which

I happened

to possess



Just an American lost in Denmark. The past few weeks being back in the good old USA. It is like Aliens have taken over my mind, changing it from what I knew to what I know. It might be the heat, or it might be the influence of hearing English 24 hours a day, but whatever the cause, it is only temporary while dealing with this time and space.
