In Awe of Him Despite His Way

he's a dog-
and he revels in it
his stories of fooling the
easily fooled women in his
life make me laugh
thank God i'm a relative
and not his next victim
the tales run from
fairly tame to graphic
he's a misogynist
yet i'm drawn in
and want to be around
am i learning how a
snake thinks
am i gaining knowledge
to prevent becoming
someone's naive girl
i'm not sure-
it's entertaining listening to
his braggadocio
i keep getting tempted to
cry on his shoulders about
a lover who has done me
could i expect comfort from
or be reminded that it's all
part of the game
