I Love You

What Do You Know?

My first concert

Was a great “Blooming buzzing confusion.”


The storyteller with the saxophone

I file you in my iphone.


Lefty, coffee-drinking, creative thinker, Trekkie: is my type.

Ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny-


If a pore bearer

Then as a sponge I need not fear my heart bursting.


You radiate sounds; I absorb you.


If a homo sapiens

Then as a woman I might make you this poem…


Tu m’amuse.

Maybe I be a female dolphin, hunting with a sponge tool, you too?

My virgin concert

Bright saxophone “blooming

Buzzing confusion

Pore Bearer

Sponge, I wish I were

Absorbing you, never fearing

For my heart bursting
