Excusable Poetry

by Regis Boff

Women never base long or short term affection on their sexual hysteria. For this reason this makes them more reliable than men.
Even in the urgency of the bar’s “last call,” they will calmly counterfeit for themselves a romantic landscape that will help forgive the alleyway or the cheap hotel where they wind up on any given night.
They invent excusable poetry to surround their poor decisions.
