Does not Lift a Finger
Has A Straw to Add
for D.B.A.

i.
to have said that you do nothing
and that you have done nothing
to cause me to love you

does it mean that you INSIST
upon doing nothing
while at the same time
INSISTING that I do for you

make so many sacrifices
on your behalf
for no reward
already given
or to await

ii.
D’Anthra admitted
on the phone just now
that she does nothing
and has done nothing
to cause me to love her as I do

on the other hand though
she does certainly require
demand, expect a lot of me
because of my love for her

she is certainly utilizing it to the max
getting from it
every advantage she can get

and giving and is prepared to give
not a fucking thing back

she should be ashamed therefore
to admit contributing
and to having contributed nothing

this is to admit that she requires much
and gives nothing back
that she desires and is prepared
to give nothing back

if she gives and will give nothing,
similarly, shouldn’t she require nothing

are her requirements though
are they not therefore, something
that she gives if nothing else

is even that
not something that she gives BACK

is this too fine
or too negative a point of contribution
for her to recognize

is what she does give,
too fine for her to put into language,
to put into words

already you know she has a LAZY mind
too lazy even, most of the time
to bother to be polite,
to bother to be gracious
