Learning to Speak Me: Part II

seduce me
do not squander silences
create of words a cassock
sway me gently
do not write poetry.
do not speak poetically.
do not ponder in meter or philosophize in line.
do not brood in rhythm or contemplate in rhyme—often.
think
say
mean
don’t speak
speak
tell me what my words say to you
know this
if my tone offends you, you aren’t listening
