Opposites for Beginners
I’ll watch until the end credits read ‘best boy’:
you’ll phone your friends with the hero
hanging from the cliff.
You’ll remember every birthday - even
my mother’s - although I don’t think
you even like her.
You’d watch celebrities dance out of the jungle:
I’d rather watch the radio if
it wasn’t switched on.
We choose our Christmas presents blindfold from Argos
Catalogue, but you use the
index and I don’t.
I look at you and remember that I love you
for being something other
than what I think I want.
