She like to
Chase work
And play

She describes herself
She’s hardworking and lazy

He never

Tells her he’ll call later
She wants to hear
I’m not letting you get off the
Phone with me
Or I’ll call you as soon as I get up

Faced with the contradiction
Of what she likes to have
And who she wants him to

Does she realize
What has made him

Doesn’t yet see
What his locks of twists are

“Tell me where does your great strength

So I can make sure I will never touch it
So I can groom it
Treat it
Make it grow soon
It’s better

To work more
And rest less

So for you
I’ll be harder
And give you my best.”
