Travelers Welcome

by Daniel Patrick Roche

Why does the girl across the bar
give me lustful looks?
The answer, elusive in my head
as in any of my precious books.

Greeks tell us she looks
for the union of complements.
Schopenhauer is no more competent.

His “Will to Life” smacks
of simply being an opulent
version of ‘opposites attract.’

Scientist do no better in their tracts
saying we seek advantageous traits
differs not from Schopenhauer’s postulates.

But she proves not one to wait
for me to solve this standing mystery.
Everything in this world is slippery.
