Future Spouse

two types of people:
one who waits around
for the perfect person,
their one true love,
and another who waits only
for a good moment to settle
on a lover after surveying
numerous possible options,
examining their pros and cons
and marrying, calling it done.

it’s insurance, really,
it’s like a little green gecko
in your ear saying:

you could marry her and be
85% happy, or you could marry
her and be 90% happy, but 5% less
happy in this way, or you could
never marry and add 15 years
or more to your life span.”
