When Women Criticize Guys Romantic Efforts: A Revolutionary Blogging Poem

April 26, 2010

A friend’s Blog, EekHarmony, had a statement about romantic efforts by guys: “I humbly submit for the pleasure of the many rapier wits on this site. Fabulously cool or frighteningly creepy?” My comment on the blog was:

If I, as
a rapier wit
was criticized
for writing or doing romance (or something like it) …
I’d quit.

Beyond fabulously cool.
Think of the synapses
which have to be connected
to make creative love passes.

So why deign to criticize
Any guy who at least tries?
