31-Day Poem: Day Twenty-Eight

For Those Unworthy, Fate Has Deemed

Out of a corner of my eye,
catching a glance of an angel
whose wings settle into
another man’s strong arms,
I have to be happy
for her, for them both.
I have to. I set myself up for this.

Why do they all pass me?
Why do they all?

Science would have me believe
my genes aren’t well.
I happen to agree.
