I told my dude I would go off and do him proud,
that I would return someday with a beautiful
girl on my waist and we'd smile at each other
with those knowing smiles.

But say I bring back a full-fledged woman, her
beauty a mere side-story to the intricate plot
inside her, one who instantly and completely
understands everything beneath our sly smiles.

But we know better than to expect that:
We expect nothing or everything
but certainly nothing to remove or dilute
this slyness, these smiles, my dude.
