Important Decisions I Have Recently Made & The Logic that Informed Them

Having had a chance to think it over, I have decided
not to let you read my book. You are so slow
to respond to the simplest things.
You read carelessly.
You gloss over all the important bits.
And there are so many words you don’t understand.  

Having had a chance to think it over, I have decided
not to loan you my car. You have crashed
several times before.
The crashes were all your fault.
You skidded into a police car that was parked
in front of a police station
while police officers watched.
It was embarrassing to know you.  

Having had a chance to think it over, I have decided
not to sleep with you. You are clumsy.
You drop things all the time.
You keep forgetting the things I like and sometimes
you forget that your mouth is open.
I am afraid it would be a terrible waste of my time
and I am busy right now with my job.
And my quilting.
And taking my dogs to the park.  

You should probably shower
more frequently. Sometimes you smell a little
like moldy bread. 
I do like bread, but 
not when it is moldy.
