Least Favorite Flavor


Seeking solace
In the arms
Of my agitated agitator

Her sobs
Will be back
After these messages

About how I could
Have consoled her

The precise
End all
Be all
Do all
Of the arm upon the shoulders
That makes one feel better
In a way my attempted
Did not
Could not

Each affection
Lavished upon me
A purple blueprint -
She says,
"See, that's how you're supposed to
Make someone feel better."

I try to match the steps
While trying to seem like
I'm dancing freestyle

The soundtrack in my head plays
"It Must Have Been Love"
"50 Ways to Leave Your Lover"
But falls short of

"Red Rubber Ball"
"We Can Work It Out"
