You have the feeling
That it’s going to be
A good date;
The guy seemed

Quite genuine,
Seemed to have
His wallet full;
His eyes

Never left you
For a moment
At the gallery,
Despite the art

All around
Worth a few Ks
And such;
And his gentle speech

On Vettriano
Left you in a haze,
Imaging him
Caressing you,

Kissing you,
Wining and dining you
Until the night was old
And he pumped up

And raring to go
Would sweep you
Off your feet
And into his bed.

A doubt or two
Creeps in,
Trickle bit by bit
Into your mind:

What if he’s not
What he says he is?
What if he’s a fraud
Or psycho? 

Should I stay
Or should I go?
How will I know?
You apply

The final lipstick,
Smile at the compact mirror
In your hand
And give a wink.

It’ll be fine,
It’ll be great,
Things are never
That bad
On a rich man’s date
