This Can’t Be a Love Poem Because I Am a Poet

Fox Mulder was too sensitive
To tell Scully the truth. It’s out there
on Netflix. He should have stopped her
from wearing those boxy jackets 
and too-long skirts. Scully, 
he could have said. Scully, 
they do you no favors. 

He cared more for greys. 

Nancy Botwin was too insensitive
to really go for Andy. You might think
she was sensitive and holding back
because Andy was her brother-in-law
but we are talking MILFweed 
and suburban baronesses
and spankings in limousines Nancy. 

She cared more for selling weed. 

In/sensitive? I’m neither one of those. 
I’m numb. I’m dumb. I ask questions like
how did you like the book, or 
would you like to talk about this tomorrow, or
I just turn on the TV and write a story 
based on a show I saw another time I turned it on. 

I care more about metaphor, Fukushima, and sorrow.
