Channeling my inner Dorothy Parker this week on 5×500.

five by five hundred

While it’s true I don’t know you –
please listen, my dear.
I’ve been in your place
and I’m being sincere.

It’s exhausting business –
this forced pas de deux,
as you think of new ways
to make him think of you.

This path you’re pursuing
is suffering defined.
A man given to flights
will leave you behind.

So pull all your punches
and give up that fight.
If he won’t take your bait,
he may have lost his bite.
