boy meet girl—you know
assimilation complete
cannot be reversed
assimilation's children
often pay their price dearly

Part of youthful rebellion sometimes brings about a reversal of sorts.

Results can differ in assimilations people do make.

What a wry take on biological imperatives! The taut form underscores the message.
