Speak synergy to me
Words that bow tie me
to sunshine and don’t put
midnight on my tongue.
Knock judgment down
to a paint color other than bleak.
Spare me the claw…I’ll resist the thorn.
It takes one to change the conversation,
two to agree.
Tit for tat we’re better than that.
If words were real estate, how much would
you pay for a house full of windows
where bricks blocked every view?
