a assortment of words


a assortment of words time to strike terse
b all you can be or not to be
c that is the question
do you think what i think
and feel what i feel?
about simple letters? about crumpled paper?

because I've the urge
to submerge
a plethora of words

I've the thought
long sought
but all for naught

because tricksters and wordplay
are for cruel jokes and foreplay

but here's an alphabet for 'u' and a clever 'r' for two
so I can ask 'who'
can see between the clues?

getting tired of love and sick of angst
time for these letters to tether
a new breed of ideas

so let me speak
these short lines in glee
and finish this piece
with a befitting 'z'
