Why I Chose You (You, Me and Everyone Else)

For the scent that you —

and thousands of others —

wear,

for the wave that crashes through your —

and thousands of others’ —

hair,

 

but I wouldn’t be so shallow: I care

about the core qualities we —

and thousands of others —

share

 

and the idiosyncrasies of your spiritual essence,

like your —

and thousands of others’—

effervescence,

 

your obsession with cats and dogs

based on Animal Planet shows you —

and thousands of others —

saw.

 

and our uniform life philosophy,

freakish in its synchrony

because we —

and thousands of others—

first heard it on TV.

 

Yet we fawn over how quirkily

our love has bloomed

because the ethos of uniqueness

persists in ads, ballads and and novels we —

and thousands of others —

consumed.

 

I star in a force-fed love story with you,

following the script that we —

and billions of others —

are indoctrinated into.
