Can You Blame Me
A tone poem
by Clarence R. Keller
Can you blame me for wanting to be with you?
Every pore of my body is filled with images of you.
I’m like a human YouTube channel.
Videos of you float around in my brain
just waiting for a flick of my memory mouse
To flash them on my sentient screen.
Can you blame me for wanting you?
You are the most beautiful woman in my life!
Whether dancing wildly at a party,
Or posing with models less beautiful than you…
Whether talking excitingly about your dreams…
Or creating one of your intensely soulful poems --
You are the perfect example of perfection!
In all aspects of your life, my darling,
I find you completely irresistible!
Can you blame me for wanting to be with you…
now and forever?
