plein [Y] — (viii)

ok
let’s be serious
that’s not how i learn

asking me to repeat
until i know it solid
a phrase

it’s like
asking a dog
to sing

i need to use the words
in reality
a genuine act

ho ho ho
all the world’s a stage
but    here    yes

i want to learn your language
your headspace homeland
you

if we’re going to stick
which feels now
like throwing a five & a six
with die loaded
for twos

i have to know why
you put up with
my stupidity
my horrible habits
the kind of thing
     that’d make
          the average rat
               dive into
                    the snake’s
                         jaw

open

                         jaw

isn’t
the letter j
beautiful

the curve
          the curve
the letter j

beautiful

j



beautiful
