To the Bearded Girl

by Alex Galper

DON'T despair, oh beauty, over triumph of male hormones
I am not the most handsome man myself
And I don't care about your facial hair
I love you for so much more
We will go to my place
I will introduce you to my mom and declare:
'''Here is the chosen one
I will marry her
If she stops stroking her beard
And curling her moustache like a dashing Cossack.'''
