Who Wants a Lover?

Who wants a lover this Valentine’s Day?

Who wants a meaningless fling?

Who wants a romance with no consequences,

No major commitments, just minor offenses,

No number, no text, and no ring?


Who wants a lover this fourteenth of Feb?

Who wants a roll in the hay?

Who wants next morning to say that was fun,

A meeting that’s over before it’s begun,

With little occasion to stay?


Who wants a lover this Valentine’s Day?

Who wants a chance to say no?

To schmaltzy hand-holding and sweet hesitation,

To code words and cuddling and close conversation—

You can come, as long as you go.
