Water and Oil

I’m surprised we lasted for long,

surprised at how patient we were.

When I wandered off

and you couldn’t figure out why

we were patient.

But I knew long ago

and maybe it should’ve ended then

rather than taking chances

to see if we’d improve.

I knew long ago

that our bodies were like

cocoa and berries

or butter on pancakes

but our souls....

water and oil.
