People are always


The soulmate concept

I.E., my soulmate

May be the homeless man

Wrapped in a blanket on the sidewalk

Drinking from a bagged bottle

Or a child

Or a wildly inappropriate person

(according to my standards)

Someone I wouldn’t be caught

Dead or alive with

Maybe not a person

Maybe a protozoa

This time around

So in order to ignore that fact

And continue to search

For the one true love

Of one’s life

We eclecticize the myth

My favorite is the Greek playwright

Aristophanes’ Cartwheel People

Zeus split us up and we spend

An entire lifetime looking for that

Other half, our exact duplicate

Physically, not soulfully

Not putting it down

Eclecticizing, taking from

Multi-myths, rationalizing reasons

Why they look and act the way they do

Is a very human need for me and you

And so the definition of eclecticizing

According to me

Is to invent reasons why

Only the perfect match

Qualifies as soulmate

Me?  Well, I’ve accepted the microscopic

Protozoa this lifetime

He (it?) really has intense karma

Some day, we’ll be together…
