Another Day in the Subway (19/365)

Here to amuse
Here to annoy
I look deep
Into your eyes
And you into mine
What will I find?
Something to love
Something to fear

A cute little dress
Shows off her genetics
The men can’t help
But stalk her with their eyes
Proves how little control
We have over
Life’s lust for itself
We are pretty packaging
For strands of DNA

And the smarter we are
The more sensitive to data
We compute
To survive and adapt
Tho’ to her chagrin
We don’t always choose
In favor of life

And the big have advantage
And so do the cute
The smart to a point
Or you can buy your way.
Charm is deceitful
And beauty is fleeting.
