I am addicted to love

I search for it

in all the wrong places

if I had to make a list of ‘lovers’

(not a great word for the fumbling-intense-passionate groping

with oftentimes complete strangers)

my list would be

i n c o m p l e t e

forgotten names

inconsequential fumblings and gropings

mostly: unsatisfying lays

but that was my way

I know intellectually, that love must be found

inside of me

that I need to find a way to forgive

the little girl who doesn’t know what

she could have done wrong

just knows she must have done something

or she wouldn’t be feeling so
