in all fairness

I would never betray you
if it were not for
vanity and exploration

how can I know
you are the best
drink
unless I drink many
drinks?

how can I like your
toes and your eyes
and arms and shoulders

unless I have
looked at other
toes and eyes and
arms and shoulders?

you too must
drink other drinks

I want to be
the one
you want in your
mind and your gut and
your bathroom

but I don’t want you
to fuck the whole
world
to find out

I think ten men would
be fair
for    you

twenty women
for me

and haven’t we
had that
already?

I’ll even let you
have
a couple of women
if   you’ll
let me
watch
and masturbate
across
bodies

I only want to
be fair

do think this
over

love is
important

and
after I bury
you

I promise to
abstain for
3 weeks.
