If oxytocin causes love,
And not my own free will,
Then praised be oxytocin’s god
But I will love you still.
If stardust is the birth of love
Will I love you less?
How would it change my love for you
To know love’s starryness?
Still, if love has followed light
To bind us oxytocin-wise,
How can I not look into night
And wonder where love’s country lies?
