Three cents for a match –
Bumble dating donation –
Will take a LOT more –
To convince local women –
To swipe right on Asian men

Harbourwalk Poem W268

Thousands of crickets –
Chirping to be noticed not
By other crickets –
But rather by some humans –
Seeking crickets to play with

Better that I think –
I am more attractive than
Society does –
And be happy on my own
Rather than settle for love

Who frequently dates bland men –
Complaining on date –
I’m so grateful I can find
Happiness being alone

Woman swiped left on my profile –
To pass up on me –
Unaware I saw it so
I said “hi” and wished her luck

If I should end up –
With a trophy wife one day –
Women should not judge –
She would be for surviving
Their biases all my life

Having to win a small lottery –
To get a ticket to play the big lottery –
Love in Nova Scotia for me –
As an Asian male visible minority –
Compared to the Caucasian majority

That you once enjoyed so much –
Become annoying –
Because your circumstances
To the source person has changed
