Later Than You Think / For S. W. - Poem by Bruce Deitrick Price

Even more than delicious and desirable
you are—and this is universally verifiable—
absolutely and totally unreliable.
Another day or two of you, and I—so placid and pliable-
will certainly be certifiable.
The issue is instantly identifiable:
when you'll do what is never ever specifiable.
Is the situation even remotely rectifiable?
Just once, say a time and mean it, then I'm satisfiable.
Otherwise, another approach appears more and more viable,
No judge, no jury would ever say homicide was unjustifiable.
