Three Poems

The Method

Everything I do, I do in order to get something.
For example: Jane.
I want Jane, but she doesn’t want me.
Now, everything I do,
I do in order to get past the obstacles to Jane.

Why doesn’t Jane want me? Perhaps she fears me.
Why does Jane fear me? Perhaps I am violent.

What is violence? What is power?

I hide my needs.
I act like a different person.
I do it in order to get what I want.

Which in this case, is Jane.
