Random Poem:

If You Were a Website I'd Click 'Add to Favorites'

While eclectic egos
gripe for adjectives
we verb for memories;
caress for metaphors--
craft with inkless pens and
open endeavoring hands.
Palms rubbing forearms
fingers 'round napes of necks
we mix better than chex
and your love drips like sugar-sap
over my crackled to-do list.
Every blink is a snapshot
committing moments to memories
and every sound goes platinum
we can't hear enough.
