Immaterial Losses (3)

“Boys want girls
 Because they want them;
 Girls want boys,
 Because other girls want them.”

The dumb things that I learned or heard
Come back to me at times when I
Am trying to make sense of how
And why the world is like it is.

Why sometimes we are put upon,
And sometimes the aggressor,
The this-not-that of daily choice,
The prior, the successor —

I guess I’m saying in the end,
Obsessing will not get me there:
And while I know why I was, I
Have no idea why you

Were even there
