the debt for happiness (20161103)

what do you want to do
marry every girl you know
that gets pregnant

messiah complex
if she’d been more educated
might have been her guess
though misguided
both she and i, really

her exasperation at
my naiveté
my disgust at her lack
of compassion

and carrying that
knowledge about us both
a red check in a black column
shaped like a ridiculous valentine heart


as everything turns grey
