THE INTERRACIAL TADPOLES ARE DOING IT AGAIN
they say that everything comes in threes.
and that's why
if you get knocked in the head
then fall flat on your face, someone
is bound to kick you in the ribs.
it just the price we pay
for waking up to a sunrise
on beach next to someone beautiful
because even happiness has its costs.
and we all walk around so confused and ashamed
that we forget even the simplest of things:
like the fact that the universe
has never been mysterious.
there is a ying and yang to everything
and we choose to learn what we want to.
there is a curtain we can pull aside at anytime
but think that we deserve the dark.
and maybe that's why
you can dine on imported veil
each night for dinner...
then die before ever being loved.
