Waving white flags

I turn over to you
spy reports, stacks of paper, spreadsheets
marked in red X’s and O’s
Circles and arrows
documenting your weaknesses,
your least defensible positions.
As invaluable as they have been…

Just realize…

I do not surrender because I cannot win.
Not because I am weak or because I am wrong.

It’s just that…
in the end, I…
love you more than I love being right.
