Gain

alt

What do you gain from me...?...
A voice of wildernesses past,
angst and beauty of a dreamlike
caste embossed with poetry...

When you reply your eyes incline
in crinkled wry and whimsical
sincerity; ...coffee, the capacity
to make damn good coffee
...

The irony is palpable and grieves
me not, in truth your need is
what leads and comforts me
cafe latte s’il vous plait!
