Skipping Steps

Perhaps because everything we want to know
Is there instantaneously:
We’ve the modern tendency just to expect –
By bad analogy –

That we, in relationships, just can skip steps.
Which makes no sense at all:
For humans are not information age bots,
We can’t walk till we crawl.

For instance, I think, at the minimum, we
Must meet to fall in love:
I also think if we’re to co-habitate
Each must be worth of

Full trust in the other. And that stuff takes time.
But we constantly slip
By jumping head without testing the ground
Past all the steps
We skip
