reading the small ads:

man developing anima

seeks woman

developing animus

& after that erudite

if brief proposition

to think: what could go wrong?

this implies a certain Jungian sophistication

in understanding the world

a man becoming in touch with his inner female


a woman becoming in touch with her inner male

both possibly seeking balance

with themselves & with another

some thoughtful heterosexual liaison

but can eros flourish there?

is love that thoughtful

or based on deeper red raw feelings

blunt lust in the purple carnal pull of the unknown


our chafed innate fierce instincts over cold intellect?

& underneath that ad another:

man 32 seeks woman 20’s/30’s

must have own teeth & truck

no haters please

now there is a man

who recognises

knows clearly what he wants
