The wink

Freedom rejected your advances with the subtlety of a lady,
fooling you into thinking
that all you had to do to get her company
was to avoid being a follower.
And as your confidence grew,
she increased the distance by turning you into a leader.
You forgot how roads get rid of some idiots
by stepping down from the sidewalks.
How coffee spills all over the place
so it doesn’t have to energize you.
You forgot half the story. Freedom winked at you,
and you mirrored her gesture by closing one eye.
