Argument #1

by Indigo Tempesta

I want, on your Stevensian
young Wertherish morning bus
to fold your hands and thing of me
in wet paper and pencil. Very carefully
so as not to tear, think of me. Let there be some second
it was so, since you are after all only my
very dear friend.

                                 Rake, for posterity
your hair back from its posturing
attention. For a bus ride's time, pretend
all our accounting sums something,
tallies to real fingers
and miniature curls,
with us and never to
be, pretend our burnt
intentions carven

You are a unique writer, using words that I know not of that completely thrill me upon reading them. ~ Jill

That's a hell of a fascinating, brilliantly written argument.
