Would you like to fall in love?
We can fit it in between four and five.
If that’s all right let me check my calendar.
Sounds about right to me.
At about eighteen years I think this should be right.
We can watch the sunset at eight.
Afterwards we can make sure to fall.
Fall even more than before.
But have me home before ten.
Because I have to fall asleep.
So I can dream up something better.
It’s not “you”, we will say.
No it’s me.
I can lie through my teeth, it’s a gift.
And after the fight two weeks in we can schedule a phone call.
You’ll want me back and I’ll oblige.
And we’ll fall.
Fall even more than before.
Then after a year I’ll decide it’s too much.
I never wanted love in the first place.
I should have just told you I was busy.
