We Do Not Choose Love
We do not choose love, though it may seem that way
in the ceaseless dance of man with woman,
when hot fires urge us to approach and flirt and
hope it leads to more exciting things.
We do not choose love, though we may try
and prowl the jungles of the pub, or night club
or email universe, full of evermore glittering stars
that draw us on, with promises seldom kept.
