Boy: Once upon

        A piece of string

        A bridge was built



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


         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.

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 4/11/2009
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,
