Veronica tells me
‘I can control if I fall in love’


there were nights I came home to my controlled life
tumbling over the front lawn.
I was in love against my will, in denial
with an equal fool in a years-long
game of duck, duck

love swung back two years later
all handsome, broad shouldered and devil eyed
and if you think you won’t know love if it
picked up your broken ass and bought you a margarita
you’d be surprised
