Men who run

Men who run
are everywhere,
leaving wives,
leaving children.
Why do we choose
these men who run?
Why pick them,
to father children,
who are left fatherless?
The men who would stay
seem - bland,
unfamiliar. So -
we choose
the chaotic,
the entrancing,
the men with dancing eyes,
and fast words,
and fast feet;
the men who run.
