A La Carte

Just because you’re sleeping with that guy
is no reason we can’t talk.
Just because you’re dating him
– married to him?
Fine, whatever –
doesn’t mean you can’t see me
too.

It needn’t be binary
nor so black and white.
You can add me to your diet
as an a la carte item.
I’ll take what I can get.

Just because you’ve already selected
who you’ll be buried with
is no reason you can’t live beforehand.
Include me
in your life.
