(I didn’t realize yesterday was the end of a month.  Counting the days this way gives them the cohesiveness of the year without the categorizing of dates.  Anyway, Barry White opens up May…)

You’re playing a game.  It’s so plain you want me to win…

The highest form of competitive gameplay is when one player cares less about what he wants to do
And instead attempts to decipher his opponent’s strategy.

The psychological warfare we’re engaged in
The tussle over control
Is a mere formality when both of us want to sacrifice ourselves for the other

Winner is just a label
One that doesn’t matter as much as Lover
The game teaches that we play it
But the contest is over once we’ve selected an opponent
And want to learn more about our opponent
More than we want to do our own thing.
