for jon

i’d like to sit here all page and impress you with words

telling you how arresting you are

but you know rhetoric

and you have a bigger vocabulary than i do

so let’s not do words

let’s ignore the lack of capitals and periods and commas in this thing

let’s pretend that i am not trying to be stylish

let’s forget this writing business for a minute

instead

focus on who i am when i’m with you

recall how often i laugh

notice how time goes by

i’m hoping you’ll realise that i want to be close to you

maybe you’ll see how happy you make me

(or invite me to be)

maybe you’ll understand yourself by how much i want in
