Femme Fatale

He isn't helpless in this instance.
He has done his homework, made
A list of all the reasons why
She isn't right for him.  For one,
She's vain.  She knows she's lovely,
Takes for granted threading through
The colonnades of gaping men who
Offer clumsy pick-up lines.  She's
Rude, sometimes, to lesser beings.
She flies into rages at what he thinks
Are the dumbest things.  They wouldn't
Last a week together even if she fell
For him, but, still, when she comes
Into view...
