it is madness, I think,
to be seduced by a woman
you have never met before.
a woman you have only created, really,
in your head.
there she is: tall, European, attractive.
she writes poetry.
she has sent you her poetry.
it is all brave, deep and cool.
it has cost you 3 hours of your life
and eight four dollar beers.

Uh, I'm jealous ... next time post her phone number! (Which goes to say, I like the poem.)
