it’s how you say it…


I pay so much attention

it runs into the triple digits,

–the freebies I add

alternately reluctant and grandiose–


of mind I give…

~like a gift~

(the smoking kind left on

the stoop of favorite neighbors everywhere)

ask you to lend an ear

to reciprocate

–so my KER-a-Van goghs—

borrow Blue when I wanna

(i’m Little)

and take advice recklessly where I wanna…

(not big)

solve it like a Rubiks,

and toss it away…

steal hearts to compensate smash & grab

wear ’em like shrinking heads

replacing hips

and borrowing time…


prompt: borrow
