Poetry 101 Rehab: Couple

it’s a sort of staredown.

we are not evenly matched:
you are a formidable opponent.
wise beyond your years, it
is all i can do
to keep up with you.

you have your boundless knowledge:
evolving and spinning, ever changing.
i cower before you, bracing
myself for another day spent
in your all encompassing presence.

only you are strangely irresistible:
i just keep coming back.
you make me nervous, tense
and drain away the hours
before i know they’re gone.

i still need a job.
