instructions to the dance: (let her dance!)

FIRST make love. do your best,
to remember all the smells.
(because-
it's sad to forget)

love her first. give yourself to
her. make her your world. first-
first: make her your world.

NEXT: find something true to tell her.
(do you have any truths left,
baby?)

build something. a machine,
that. can't. lie.

FOLLOW her. into the unknown,
don't. fear. love.
(is that what scared you?)

THEN be- a man.
don't be afraid to,
pick up the pieces.
