But You Are Like the Bible


The problem is that this
Is what our conversation might have meant and
It is a valid interpretation,
But you are like the Bible;
You admit multiple hermeneutics
And a relationship may be maintained
With you for many years
In the confidence that feelings
That someone else might never have derived
From these words and glances given
Are as real as any other.

And the problem is that in
Your justification of yourself you are complete and
Will never allow for your contradictions,
And you are like the Bible;
You are prone to outbursts of assurance and of wrath
And a relationship may be maintained
With you for many years
And one may never know for sure
Whether paradise awaits
Or consignment to the outer darkness
Where piteous cries are made and teeth are ground.

(This is as good a time as any to remind you that I have a Patreon where you can support my writing and games.)
