a few steps away



do you want me down there ?
with your loans and exchange rates and the awful, old men
catching colds as they wait for their fortunes to grow?
I can always drop by, bring you cheesepies and coffee
be as pleasant as tidings, but hey
do I want you up here?
with my books and my photos and the silly old tricks
turning phrase after phrase for a book never published
You can always reply to my lines and my letters
be as pleasant as tidings, but hey...

Hmm, why did you ever pose that question I must wonder, but yeah, I would... I guess... well come up and we'll see how things work (??)
I'm kidding, actually the poem is about vicious circles, but it's a great observation, thank you stranger;
Next time you visit my blog though, please insert a name, as the URL is optional. Just saying :)
