bossy comes in all sizes

writers write
they say
you say
i really should
more
i know
but
sometimes i don’t like
the floundering
in the muck and mire
to try to find
that one
nugget
of universal golden truth
of heads nodding
of you swooning
of
course
it’s not
lack of desire
it’s more a
disdain
for the wrong words
i mean
how do you describe
the realization
that olive branches
extend
in both directions
wrapped in
turquoise ribbons
i imagine
even now
sleeves rolled up
thinking cap on
slightly askew
there remains
a disconnect
too much to share
looks like
nothing to share
looks like
another day of chasing
that which
doesn’t want to be
caught
yet
writers write
you say
maybe i shouldn’t
just
wait
for the perfect idea
at the perfect time
maybe
but i waited for
you
and i like
how that worked out
