.. Art is weaker than life - in the end I have a bag of letters to scrabble into order - rune tiles to cast my fate..
.. Perhaps in actions I'm less of a man - but, oh the words - such lovely words..
.. When you're hard and unyielding your words score me with lines - I hate lines - I want curves - curves are happy like a snowman..
.. Words are so strong and I am so timid - my soul ignores warnings and I end up covered with your paint..
.. You can be angry and silent, but it's no use - there's no distance in the spirit - besides, my words touch you more softly than my hands..
.. Good words - that triumphalism of positivity- but life will claw and eat you - chew you over and over - if you carry such a small knife..
.. Come lie beside me again and understand - the others can show by actions, but I alone will immortalize you in words..
..I need you to be a listener - you need me to hang word on. We're friends because neither has discovered a limit where the other ends..
.. You can use words if you wish, but I'm warning you - I've learned how to read your heart..
.. Only a seer or a lover would know that I'm making a jewelry of words for you -drawn from your essence -to flash and burn with your fire -so you can bedazzle with your own light..
.. All this time I've been worshiping you - when other men wanted to kiss you, I've been offering the praise of my lips..
.. You know I wanted a Madonna, not a whore - I made you sacred offering you my words..
.. Being with you was so easy and natural - there was no strain - I never had to guard my words..
.. How are you sacred to me? Your lines are golden threads - your patter, my patten - I explore the liturgy of your words..
..I gave you painted air - tears I couldn't weep - truths I couldn't speak - all the words that caught in my throat..
