Ivanovitch, his Wife Ivy and Mr. Stud




Ivanovitch talked about Ivy to me 

And after listening to Ivanovitch 

And listening to Ivanovitch’s stories about Ivy

I asked to meet her.



“I’d like to meet your ex-wife Ivanovitch” I said.

Ivanovitch replied, “OK”.



An e-mail introduction.

“Ivanovitch here, I’d like you to meet”.



He provided each of us with a telephone number and an e-mail address.

I replied to Ivy immediately.

I’m not sure but I may not have had anything better to do?



After reading Ivy’s delayed response I told Ivanovitch,

“I don’t want to meet Ivy any more”.

“That’s OK with me”, said Ivanovitch.



Later Ivanovitch told me he had a new girlfriend


“Good for you!”, I exclaimed.

“Are you jealous?”, he confused me by asking.

“No”, I answered puzzled,
“Why should I be?

”

That was the last time I saw Ivanovitch.

I never met his wife Ivy.



I met Mr. Stud around the same time I met Ivanovitch.

It was that kind of week.


Mr. Stud kept advising me of my options

and couldn't seem to hear me when I replied,
"I know".


He didn't like Ivanovitch, Mr. Stud,
and he wasn't fond of Gomer Grunt, Mr. Shaw or Fred either.


But his stories were titillating

and everyone else seemed quite busy,

so I tried playing with Mr. Stud for awhile

but we just couldn't seem to meet.



Gomer Grunt told me Mr. Stud was an idiot

and Fred said he just wanted a peek.

Mr. Shaw simply wouldn't discuss it.

So in the end


I was forced to write off the whole week.





Safe 


Her opinion was raped

Most of her life


Violated for the usual reasons






Lust........ Power.....
... Greed....
.... Pain........ Boredom........ Fear...
..... Ignorance







Used

Then cast aside


Her opinion now sits shivering

Cold and afraid,
cowering and wary






Alone















Men-O-Pause

Echoes

of
Silence

and

Laughter





And some few Fears


Leaking through a gossamer barrier





Called Time



















Me

ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME
