Hawks Into Doves

Why do I like things

I can’t agree with

 

Why do I listen

when I don’t want to hear

 

Why am I attracted

to things that repel me

 

Why are my reasons

more muddled than clear

 

Why do I often

begin at the ending

 

Why do I hurt

the people I love

 

Why are my questions

confused by my answers

 

Why do my hawks

—always turn into doves
