The Bouquet

Cue in the soundtrack,
The one that separates the
Singletons
from those in a relationship
the have and have nots
A Boo thang

The same soundtrack
that signifies
breakthrough
for the new bride
Yet
putting the spotlight
On those yet to find

Love.Jones.

Her official goodbye to
singlehood
Deuces
Trading her single status for marriage
Companionship
His & hers

Cue in the vocal cords of Beyonce
Hollering
“All the single ladies,
all the single ladies”

Repeat

A line of hopeful
“single ladies” is formed
Short, fat, tall, dark, light, slim
Each contending
For the bouquet
High hopes of trading
“their”single status
On your mark
Get set
Let the best claws win

Ignoring the 
roll call
Jane sits back
Spectating the
Brief encounter of humiliation
Oblivious

There has gotta be another way to find Mr Right
Until then

Memoirs of a single girl searching
