The Thing About Crushes…

you spin, surrounded
in a circle of wonderful disasters
knowing that with a little more work,
you could get them to come to Be
so you say to me,
with just one life to live,
I don’t know which one
to run with,

but that’s easy to tell,
I think, these days
just like with everything else,
you have choose
the one that will last
through the honeymoon phase…
