She’s sweet,
he said, but
worth the fuss?
Her figure proved
too straight; her bust,
not enough to hold
his interest.

He watched her

I’m miserable
again, he said,
as he looked
into his glass
and told
the bartender:
I wish
for another.

Inspired by The Sunday Whirl #94: miserable, fuss, wish, go, again, interest, bust, figure, prove, straight, enough, and sweet; and posted for Day #96 for the “100 Days of Fall/Winter 2012” challenge.
