    Does it take
    20 quires
    to ream you once?


    Linear Measures
    from 660 rods
    to get
    1 mile worth of
    thoughts out of you...

    Reverting to
    guesstimations
    to figure out
    a potency that's got
    me inebriated
    just from
    singing
    barametric- pressure- blues
    of love's sickness
    about us
    so much
    that
    others who view
    would become
    drunk -- in
    fear of being pulled
    over for an
    R.W.I (reading while intoxicated)
    --over-dosing on
    picture pages
    of an I and you -high

    Will it take the sum of
    the whole
    multiplication table
    x 'please'
    to get you
    to be real
    with your feelings
    and to
    communicate
    with the capacity of
    intellectual open-ness

    A quarter section of
    my brain awaits the
    day when I don't
    have to compare
    conversion tables
    to discover
    answers to the
    questions about
    "us"
    that you
    fail to share ~~

    I drank 8 glasses of you
    and was hydrated with 64 ounces
    of your soul times pi
    you know 3.1457............to no end

    I was filled to the brim
    with one gallon of your
    Soul I'm into................
    broken down into four parts
    I became four quarts
    or eight pints
    filled with eight
    different colors of your "Soul-bow"

    Amber
    Mocha
    Tawny
    Obsidian
    Honey
    Tan
    Blak
    Forest green

    I watch your mind run the mile
    and at each of the 5280 feet I see
    another part of you exposed.



    "Conversions" clever and definitely happening. All I can say is (__________)
    exactly, I can't say a thing because it's already been said.

    one love,blak

    Blak

    How sweet it is.....in return........
    RECI(Poetry) with weight
    from your substance
    gradually evolving
    me from my
    Barametric pressure blues
    to
    Atmospheric pressure YOU's
    and I'm
    locked into the
    diameter of a circle x 3.1416
    equalling
    a circumference
    en(wrap)tured
    by a bushel
    of confusion
    gasping for
    13 1/2 cubic feet of air
    wondering
    if you'll be there
    above sea level
    to float with the
    bowie of love
    in the center of
    the ocean
    holding up your
    weight in
    water
    or standing
    firmly on grounds
    of Surface Measure
    on a section of land
    that's = to 1 square mile
    with 24 grains of
    a Blak man's kisses
    purchased at 1 penny ---- wait (weight)...

    Let me measure you in
    spans of time
    30 days in a month --
    366 days til
    Leap Year
    maybe that's the
    Eon when you'll
    give of yourself
    and if you'd like
    to come sit at
    the table of Apothecaries'
    while I serve you
    20 grains of
    sugary samples from
    my soul's choco'lat factory
    until you
    tell me suddenly
    how you've lost
    all your scruples, because you
    chose not -- me ...

    3 knots of my love for
    you to untie ~ but you
    fell into a league of your own...
    couldn't play the game with me
    on your mind...

    I gave you four inches and you
    took my whole hand.....when all
    I wanted was Blakverb to be
    with me
    from the starting point
    of my circle to an
    un-ending
    360 degree angle
    the Whole of a Man

    hhhhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaayyyyyyy now........whatch ya'self!!
