Hard to Get
How easy it seems things can spin,
but only if you break them in
and mistake your left from your right
and loosen things that should be tight.
For gears can turn so perfectly
if spokes can match what eyes can see
and grease can spill upon the floor!
How time can make one wish for more.
Love is a well-oiled machine
for those who fight and those who dream,
but don’t lock yourself up through time
to someone who does not align.
There’s basic science to this game
that clicks inside a picture frame.
Just spin your way and don’t you fret:
what’s stuck may just be hard to get.
