I told her
Because modern boys ought to know the advice given
Hold out until Tuesday.
You know you can. No public
If necessary write it out.
But do not send.
(Especially, do not press send.)
Sit on your hands, girl
because you are waiting for move 5
in love chess.
Another poem earmarked for my forthcoming mini-collection, Emily’s Poems for Modern Boys.
