Sorry, Cupid

I don’t believe that New Year’s Eve
sets the tone for the whole year.
It seems strange to assign
such cosmic power
to a single evening
and pretend I’ve no responsibility
in the outcome.
And I never understood
why I must give
a random day in winter
the power to determine
the warmth of my affections.
I do not tell a spark,
“Wait until someone is watching
to start the fire.”
I simply let it catch.
