If you love something...

I've been writing


   poems in my head,


                all day


poems in my head, only


to watch them scatter


out my ears


   wearing thoughts on their feet,


like scuffed workboots


 seen one too many a summer.


I don't chase them down


like the jail-breaking 


   sons of bitches they are, I don't 


shoot them


in their spindly legs, or


leave mind traps


    jaws-open waiting on my earlobes.


No, I watch them run


      as a jaded lover,


certain that they'll catch some


bird-wing ride.


Or maybe I just don't give a damn.
