“Why Doesn’t She Just…”

“Why doesn’t she just…

“Hustle a ride?
“Borrow a phone?
“Just lie? What a nihilist!
“Get in a fight like a normal person?
“Make the expected trade and shut up about it?
“Put up with insults — who’s she think she is, an equal?”

Why don’t you just…

Write me a sonnet?
And while you’re at it
Rock my world with it
Make it profound
Make me think
Make me feel
What I haven’t felt since childhood
If ever before

…And by the way,
Could you lend me your phone?
