I’m pretty sure
I don’t love you
I can’t believe you
Are this articulate now.
It’s not a coincidence
That we are here
At the same time.
But…Its not about us.
You and me.
Let’s forget this
I’m not your average bear.
There are ton’s of me’s
Out there
Squirming around.
I could stand here all day
But just this particular day.

And a poke there.

The engine for a
One more thing
Don’t wake me.
I like to sleep in on Saturday.
