The two-step

It frustrated me to know that you knew that I knew but you wouldn’t give it up
I also knew that you wouldn’t give it up if I wouldn’t give you the central flower of my existence, of your thoughts, of sexual pears and apples and grapes feeding you day and night and didn’t I know it
that if I satisfied you so completely I would have all of your heart
then you would go
because I knew that would not be enough, all the yes’s in the world
would never be enough for you, your imagination far-reaching and superior to mine
always able to conjure up another three wishes
so I continue to frustrate your advances with one step forward, and two back
and every time I say no to you, it makes me smile
