Bookstore Poem #473

This may (or may not) explain a few things…

Your character flaw and mine
have decided to be friends

It’s an inexplicable attraction
unrelated to the degrees
to which they reinforce each other
or cancel each other out

Shapes mean more than substance
if they fit, it doesn’t matter
if they’re not compatible

It’s when the flaws begin to straighten out
that the gaps start to count

The shapes are still wonderful
but they no longer fit
and the treaty they have forged collapses
