Instead of her, of course, I mean

If I were thinner, hair longer, skin
smoother, eyes bluer, lips darker, and
I incorporated more daytime leather —
could I make you want me?
Instead of her, of course,
I mean.

If I were dumber, but fit,
less pent up — overtly angry – right?
Could I make you want me?
Instead of her, of course,
I mean.

Could there be a trice of
acceptance? Not as I am, of course, but
as you would want me to be,
and as I would want to be, too,
to be with you,
instead of her, of course,
I mean.
