  • Where do you go to buy your words?
    Do you get them at Armani
    Tiffany or Yves Saint Laurent?
    Somewhere in your nouns I sense
    the presence of flowers so rare.
    The essence of intangible
    exotic and alluring.
    Your verbs, as the sword falls
    when betrayal ignites your rath.
    The darkest voids of night are filled
    by your adverbs stinging light.
    What mystery lies in wait
    within the price of words?
    Those words.
    That lilt, tilt, and glint upon an armor so mesmerized.
    One can only imagine how much you paid.
