Somebody Else

You seem troubled
Recently. Like
Stuff’s on your mind.

Do you ever wish
That you were with
Somebody else?

No, but sometimes
I wish I was
Somebody else.

Why? What is wrong
With the person
You really are?

I find her a
Disappointment,
Actually.

And what was she
Supposed to be
That you are not?

Part Beyoncé
And part Einstein.
You know, like that.

I don’t think that
The hair would have
Matched the body.

Very funny.
No. Smarter and
More beautiful.

But I truly
Love the woman
You really are.

Well. I guess
That I must have
Higher standards…

… If so, I’m glad
You didn’t use
Them choosing me.
