In The Middle of the Night I Outpour These Poems

IT WASN'T ABOUT THE MONEY

We asked each other
the question: what we'd do with
a million dollars
She was to keep her day job
And I would write this poem

------------------------

I WAS A YOUNG TWENTY-EIGHT

She didn't like that
I didn't write on the lines
Or have a job yet

WHO'S YOUR FAVORITE CHARACTER IN TANACH?

Hers was Nachshon, mine:
Poet, warrior: David
Those were our answers
And we stayed sticking to them
Ask me now? Achashveirosh

--------------------------

HER FAVORITE SAYING

"You win and you lose,"
she said: wise beyond her days.
Then I won and lost

It's two different people, and to cite REM, "I've said too much but not enough," (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Losing_My_Religion)
