LOVE AND PASSION IN POETRY #2

I love this poem. It is so Grown Woman.

ROADMAP
for J. R.
She wants a man she can just
unfold when she needs him
then fold him up again
like those 50 cent raincoats
women carry in their purses
in case they get caught in stormy weather.
This one has her thumb out
for a man who's going her way.
She'll hitch with him awhile,
let him take her down the road
for a piece.
But I want to take you where you're going.
I'm unfolding for you
like a roadmap you can never again fold up
exactly the same as before.

I know!, I love it too! It is so not a sappy poem. Although there is a place for sappy too.
