The Last Blind Date

There was something about his eyes
she saw in the evening's early beginning
that reminded her of a basilisk with insidious plans.
The way they darted about during dinner
 every time a woman passed by
let her know that he was a Lothario and not to be trusted.
She concluded that he did not match the quality of man
 she was looking for.

Nervously, she jiggled her car keys as she planned her escape.
Thinking, appearances sometimes are exactly what they seem.
After the check came, she said her goodbyes along with
apologies for cutting the evening short and darted out the door.
As she started the car, she decided that would be her last blind date.
