The Bachelor had to pick one for happily ever after,

always drawn to an English rose or
recreating a page out of History,
but when it came to a Math problem involving Science,
she felt like Barbie trying to get her G.E.D.

The tenants of the Raintree Apartments were complex—
the military wives who cooked the meth,
the potheads who held Ph.D.’s,

with his literary lover, Ayn Rand,
well-hung above their bed,
