they will try you

I hear you write he goes

wondering when

you might

set the world on fire?

& I could have gone angry

could have given sarcasm

& if I was quicker of thought

some equally snide remark

made fly with asinine

but I opened a smile

wide as the sky

why would I do that?

there are some bits

I’m really fond of

& that was enough

to confuse him

at least for a little while
