Well what do you say to the woman
You meet for the first time that your recent affair partner is interested in.
'He's a good guy.' I say. Is this reassurance that he isn't a bad guy? What makes a guy good?
You are pretty sure he isn't a serial killer. At least not in the years you've known him.
'He's lived in the city for for 28 years...it's a good sign he stays out of trouble, right? '
'Oh! What kind of trouble? '
'Any kind you don't want! '
'Well I don't know about that! ...maybe I should give you my number! '
Now what? He's a nice guy but now I'm shedding big doubt? What is wrong with me?
I can't be honest.
They say to you... never let it be known
That an ounce of jealousy should
Poison your tongue
Be you speak to a potential
Victim...oh did I say victim?
I guess I did
But someone needs to take care of this man...and better her than
He IS a serial killer! He will kill you with his love!
'He needs someone', I say..
you see what happens when I don't think before I speak....Does that make someone sound like a lost puppy?
I don't think anything I could have said or not
...will make any difference
Once he has her.
She will be hooked
....and he knows that. No matter what he says or I say...it is her fate.
