The Menu

As soon as I slather it in ketchup
I immediately want mustard instead
As soon as I find the perfect blue shoe
I change the color of the matching dress
As soon as I move across the country
all I ever think about is moving back
I order cookies when I want cake
keep pushing back the wedding date
and never can choose
between Rogue and Wonder Woman
as my favorite fictional alter ego
So as soon as I say I love you
I hope you didn’t hear me
because as soon as you decide to love me back
expect me to turn around fleeing
since as soon as I settle on anything
everything else becomes the something
that I could have had just as easily
Forgive me.
