Voodoo You Do So Well

When the time comes
for you to talk her
into loving you and
trot us all out,
a macabre display
of the trials you’ve
suffered on your
way to her
as some kind of
an excuse for why
you’re so sad
and unreliable
you better tell her
the truth –

that I was the
exception
to the rule –

because I’ve
already had to pay
the price for the
women who didn’t
love you well and
I imagine the
universe itself
won’t let you make me
one of them
no matter how hard
you try

May the powers strike you
down where you stand,
I don’t care how much
time has gone by.
