You have to have a plan
for unrequital. What if
the cold light of your center
attracts no one? The dark
can sense a lack of defenses
& fill it like an orange sled
stuffed with sudden November snow.
Not everyone gets picked.
There are those who sit in cars
late at night with the interior
lights on, some desert place,
simply waiting.
