but aren't they all random?

A Pocketful of Poesy was a Poem-a-Day(-on-Average) Blog* up until the great derail of 2013. The impossibly-high standard of quality proved impractical to keep up, without a book deal. But don't take my word for it: click RANDOM and judge for yourself! And feel free to offer your critique.
*based on poem rate for calendar years 2009-2012. Also, kidding about the book deal.

I like a woman with a young ass;
a grown-up mind;
an adult sensibility -
in all that that entails;
ancient, wise eyes,
and shining behind them,
a soul that is bought
brand new, plenty of miles now
but all one owner, all good
running smooth, sweet and humming
all original parts combining
in a sum whole you could just about fit
your whole life into,

or at least you would want so much
to have fun trying, and die
while you are at it.
