fall for girls
who fall for those
 sick tropes
   of false men
     successful
     powerful
     wealthy
     predatory
     alphas
   Bruce Waynes
   Christian Grays
     driving around
     in red sports cars
     banging everything
     that walks their way
     and leaving
     as leaving a crime scene
     leaving no clues
   all these imagos
   of a broken culture
 I don’t care for you
   stupid men
   who measure up
   with
     status
     power
     and authority
   you’ll never  
   have enough
 my heroes
 are different kind of men
   the loving dad
   the airplane pilot
   the carpenter
   the writer and the artist
   the civic engineer
   the insightful therapist
   the miner and the plumber
   the teacher and the coach
     all of you  
   who strive for
     skill
     respect
     communion
   warm men
 you don’t have to be cool
 to prove yourself
nevermore
 
nevermore
 allow
 to feel alone
 with someone
   isolated
 the loneliness
   of solitude
   was meant for solitude
 so thank you
 for your time
 and lack of presence
nevermore
 
nevermore
 the stress
 of bonds
 that lack
   reciprocation
 intimacy on demand
 tolerating that
 enlarged self-interest
nevermore
 
I would rather get a dog
