Boy: Once upon

        A piece of string

        A bridge was built

        Beyond.

 

Girl: What say you, young boy scout?

        Shall we pull in vain

        So we can cross?

 

Boy: Once upon

        A metaphor

        You danced inside

        My head.

 

Girl: But the steps were wrong, all wrong.

 

Boy: It was the song.

        The song was wretched.

 

Girl: Regardless.

        Your blood cells attacked me,

         Because I’m a disease

         So I pulled off my shoes

         And left.

 

Boy: Don’t lament so.

         You left one behind.

         Shall I retrieve it?

 

 Girl: Once upon

         A flask of rum

         Intoxication

         Stitched regrets.

 

Boy: Regrets are dreamer’s folly.

        Are your toes cold?

 

Girl: Don’t dodge my direction!

        For you were the exception.

                  

Boy: Why not cross this bridge

         Of repetitive conversation

         And tie a knot

         At the end?

 

Girl: You are blinded. Hand the flask.

Boy: You are deaf. Take your shoe.

 

Girl: It seems I’ve bought new ones.

        Pawn it

        And keep the profits.

Reviewed by Karen Vanderlaan
such cynicism for one so young--but, well done and very original--i love reading your work. It is fresh and so very real!
Reviewed by Regis Auffray
Oops. You spelled "piece" wrongly in the title... ...of course, unless you meant to; which, judging by the way you write, would not surprise me. I mean that respectfully. You write brilliantly because you express so much. Thank you. Love and best wishes,

Regis
