Conversation With Jo
We can talk for hours and laugh in between
He respects my words as much as I respect his thinking
There we were choosing human characters from an article
Intrinsically we both chose a man who lavish in infidelity

that this simple quest for human character
is not something that we should take casually.

Jeweled with lexis’s such as vow, companionship and docile

And the stitches with adjectives and the lining with an apostrophes

I must have slither into it in my wake
While inhaling the words of Nizar Qabanni.
