Blind Love

BLIND LOVE
Other men
wonder about me
because my girlfriend
is fat and ugly
Indeed
she is the ugliest girl
I've ever seen
She's got a middle-aged spread
at only twenty-two
Her legs are fat
and crooked
Her arms
are the envy of local navvies
But she's my girl
and I love her so
I do not gaze into her eyes
for when we kiss
I close my eyes
her thick arms
know exactly
how to embrace me
When other men
in their foolish wisdom
ask me
what I see in her
I just tell them
- I
don't use my eyes
to make love
Another part of my body
is far better
equipped
