tête-à-tête versification

dilutes ungrateful
souls — promises
of emotional
rendered as brittle
words shatter
all over a frigid
black & ivory
ceramic floor

can you imagine
them now through
your mind\’s eye?

bruised letters
without a clue
as to their purpose
— if they are going
to be stitched
together in a sturdy
story or wasted
and lost in singular

do these words
behave in their
positions — are they good
or evil — personally
if i were a word
that belonged
in a book
i\’d love to be the last
one that lingers
& light
