conversation turns on gift only

 

 

she says i free write

wears a daisy-chain i thought

only exists in nursery rimes

 

this can’t be worth lunch

much less dinner

only to a lesser degree

 

to keep the eye moving

sub-zero conditions must meet with some approval

only in certain circles

 

weather permitting

she removes the remaining articles

only her thoughts are omitted

 

what’s left lines up right

one after the other

only she has the final say
