I was made
     For war.
        She let her
           Sugar pour.

                             She was made
                         For peace.
                    I fought with
              The police.

    I have a head
        Full of bad ideas.
             She is making home
                    Made tortillas.

                              I'm a work
                          In project.
                      She is a
                 Desired object.
       I have too
             Much to say.
                     She is a
                         Quiet day.

               I easily
           Fall all apart.
        She is smooth,
     State of the art.

                             I’m full of
                                Nervous energy.
                                   She’s a special                             

                  I’m that,
               Four AM call.
           She is the
        First snowfall.

                                    I’m full of
                                          She is a solid

          I’m ready
       To attack.
    She’s easy going
 And relaxed.

                    I can make
                      A scene.
                        She is a
                           Living dream.

    I’m a fucking
           She is hot
               Off the press.

              I seem to
           Know it all.
        She is that
     One free call.

   I’m a big
       Ball of worry.
          She is never
               In a hurry.

                   There is something
                        Wrong with me.
                            She is perfect
                               As can be.

                 I run hot
             Then cold.
        She is a
   Sight to behold.
