Losing Our Cool

{whilst swearing by all flowers}
(with ardent gratitude, always, to E.E. Cummings)


wholly to be a fool,
we spring forward with both
feet and road-rashed hands. stand
in showers of kisses, flowers;
call them real. beg, borrow

and steal moments for
blood rush and flutter flush
of skin. pay attention,

love: laugh, lean, syn
-tax, parenthesize all you
want. we’ve got time. and even

in the art of paragraph,
not a crime.

    I love what you did with the periods. They create some really cool new phrasings, like “skin-pay attention.”
