J.J. Campbell

a long note in the rain
 
find a woman that thinks
you are as cool as tom waits
in 1978
find a woman that can drink
you under the table and then
will allow you to join her
down there
find a woman that will push
you, push you past your limits,
past whatever envelope you
are carrying
past your father, past your mother
past every worry or imagined
monster in your head
past every damn ending you
thought existed, push you all
the way to the top, but never
thinks about pushing you off
find a woman that understands
the power of a saxophone and
a long note in the rain
find a woman that looks amazing
in fishnets but only wants you to
enjoy the view
find a woman that will lay under
the stars with you, ask to see what
it really takes to write a poem, licks
every scar on your body and gently
place her lips on your cheek and
whisper it’s going to be okay now
find a woman that likes to laugh
find a woman that knows how
to properly spice food
find a woman that likes good
liquor
find a woman that is willing
to want you to smell her pussy
in public
find a woman that understands
god never loved all of his children
find a woman that likes a good
hockey fight
find a woman that likes music
you don’t and allow yourself
to grow
find a woman that knows
sometimes art is stupid
find a woman that can find
beauty in a pile of shit
find a woman that understands
why no one should be having
children
find a woman that thinks you

are good enough to die for
