Duped

Standard

Testosterone

Estrogen

Dopamine                    Norepinephrine

Serotonin

      Oxytocin              Vasopressin

tumbles you haplessly into love

the steep in an irresistible biological stew

your shove off of the chemical cliff

into a world carved of drugged illusion

lured by the familiar

intoxicated by the difference

a trick of primordial nature

to incite mad acts of procreation
