I like the tang of disintegration;
Tang being the aftertaste of something worthwhile,
Tang being the length a blade travels into its handle.

We should lie together more often;
Lie being close voluntarily to see what happens,
Lie being what we said to get in that state to begin with.

I told you I like the shape of clouds;
Clouds being areas of condensed, colored moisture in the sky;
Clouds being where you lost your wallet (you thought I said crowds).

I think I might love you, collapse and all.
What can you say to that?
Exactly; what can you say?

Lucius,
Glad you enjoyed; and thanks.

Butterfly Slippers,
I'll have to think about it -- writing a poem about candy-button faces. Of course, I still need to use "butterfly slippers" in a poem somewhere, too. I think the only two names I've used successfully so far are "january flowers" (waaaay back) and "serenity" <-- but that's an easy one.

And you don't need to feel "honored," I went to read your poem. We're friends, after all. If anything, be "surprised" I found some free time.

And now my arm is a shooting pain. Better get to sleep.

Later,
Mike
