Not a love poem (a poem)

I hear a lot of poems about love, and think there has to be something else…

So much to say
about the things that go on
between you and me
and the structures we raze
in the name of settling scores

I don’t want to sit here
steeping in the blame
any more than you do
but I like my tea strong
so I let it sit

Once the windows have steamed over
I stand in front of one
and contemplate what to write
Evaporation takes away my opportunity
the kettle has gone cold

I vow not to write another poem
about the things that go on
between you and me
I need to have something else on my mind
and you’ve heard it all before
