A Quiet Understanding

2 mins read

there must be noise
he tells her
for our duet adieu

there must be noise
he bellows
his thoughts all impromptu

there must be noise
he whispers
come closer ingenue

there must be noise
he mumbles
when tactile tempts askew

there must be noise
he lectures
when arousal breaks curfew

there must be noise
he shouts now
await your turn in queue

there must be noise
he’s finished
a party to the coup

of a quiet understanding

Written years ago, and then years ago, my long term honey buddy Riverdame responded;

a hush falls
she hears
across her land

a hush fell
she feared
a state so bland

a hush had fallen
she gathered
her thoughts all out of hand

a hush had fallen
she loathes
the unplanned

a hush fell
she provoked
a countermand

a hush had fallen
she waited
for the honorand

a hush had fallen
she made her way
crashing the gate
to understand

—————–But now read’em together——-

I’m spry yet retired. I reside in the inner city of a major metropolitan area of the United States. I read politics. I watch baseball. I hum along with the tune. I June swoon, and moon the bad poem. Post here, are old and new. Opinions are my very own, except when wrong.

Comments? Cool!
