Clark Gable

clark gable is my movie boyfriend, she exclaimed.
he's so dreamy. irresistible. so debonair.
i think it's love, she cooed.

he paused momentarily
and without missing a beat replied,
"frankly, my dear,
i don't give a damn!"

she giggled
and was just about
to let loose a retort
that would've done scarlett proud
when she realized
just how uncomfortable
it is to wear a hoop skirt
during the july heat
of a southern summer.

Hi Jen! I love him, too. I just loved him in "It Happened One Night" in which he starred with Claudette Colbert. If you haven't seen it, it's so brilliant!!!

Big hugs, Kel
