As I walk, so I talk
As I see, so I read
As I take, so I make
As I forego, so I let go
I find it strange that there can be no swearing
For swearing is in the vernacular of people
big and small.
So I brought home a new car and a new laptop computer for her to use
and she looked at me unbelievably, as if to say,

Do not pander to me your poems.
Do not solicit my attention.
Do not send me formulaic messages.
Do not ask for my votes, comments, and time.
I cannot fix the kitchen sink.
Though I think, and think, and think
no amount of plunging
will from the mouth of the drain release
