Other Women

Other women, possessing key value pairs,
With dictionaries of obsolescence as resumes.

She, she isn’t thinking about you
She’s got her Tesla, her twins,
and her career future to worry about.

She, she already gave up melancholy
Now she is all planning and execution,
and morning conference calls.

She, she mostly embarrassed you
suggesting Ramana Maharshi.

School children: exams
Young girls: fashionable crushes
Newly married: already faithful wives
Young women: pregnant, loveless
Women: Old, chatty, fidgety, dry

Knowing all this, why does my heart still long for just a look, just a smile and just a kiss?
