His Platonic Mistress

We could discuss it for hours, whatever it is,
and never come to an agreement.

You would always be the same,
unreasonable, unyielding,
transcendent over right or wrong--
and what would it matter?
It is not as thought you were alive.

but now we can end it.
I can turn my back and walk away,
and you will always be there.
