NEXT DRINK
(10/14/18)

think it
through

they tell
us

consider
the consequences

because
once
the action is
taken

thinking
is no longer
a part
of the equation

I approach
women
in the same
fashion

I am
obsessed
with them

however
I must consider
the compromises
in ideals
that would have
to be made
for a relationship

the lies
that would have
to be told
in order
to keep someone
else
happy

such
a situation
could put a soul
at risk

my soul

I return
nods

smiles

perfunctory
greetings

then pass
on by

perhaps
permitting a bit
of fantasizing

a bit
of self
torture

before
returning
to the purity
of solitude
