Giving Up All Attachment To Love

'Giving up all attachment to love.'

That doesn't make sense.

'Why...
You don't like it? '

It's a bit absurd to me.
When love makes the world go round.

'What are you talking about? '

You just said...
Giving up all attachment to love.

'Oh...
That has nothing to do with you.
I was just thinking of a title for a poem I am writing.'

I thought you and I were having a conversation?

'We are.
I'm just waiting for you to say something interesting.
And when you do...
I will participate.'

Why do I keep believing,
To me you will ever be a friend?

'I love it.
Thank you.
Listen to this...
Giving up all attachment to love.
Why do I keep believing,
To me you will ever be a friend...

Go on.'

I don't even know why I am here.
You are sick.
You know that?

'Where are you getting this from?
I love it.
Listen...

Giving up all attachment to love.
Why do I keep believing,
To me you will ever be a friend...
You are sick.
You know that? '

You really are.

'Stop it.
Is this your own stuff?
You should be a writer.
I am stealing this.
I don't care what you say.
It is magnificent.'

I'm leaving.

'Why? '

We were suppose to go out to dinner.

'Why didn't you remind me?
You think I'm suppose to remember everything? '
