“I LIKE YOU & OTHER THINGS.” a poem, November 11, 2019 (Monday, Veteran’s Day)
I like you; I like you; I like you A BUNCH,
And one reason I like you is that YOU LIKE ME, and I also like to scrunch,
Close to you and whisper: “I like you and other things,”
And youKNOW, all that stuff a wonderful feeling brings;
A feeling of (youKNOW) just not having to try,
To live up to expectations; it almost makes me cry,
To feel accepted, like when I was a kid, my parents did that,
And also my puppy and our Palestrina cat.
So, isn’t that nice. I wanna hold your hand.
And I LIKE LOOKING INTO (your) EYES
