    If I could not read
    how would you really communicate
    with me?
    I sit transfixed transformed into
    emotions translator reading
    past "between the lines" I
    seperate the letters to better
    "feel" your vibe...I jump up and
    down with the excitement of
    exclamation points..."Eureka!"
    I struck gold you "really"
    meant that word...your commas
    make me pause / giving me extra
    time to think...Is that what she
    means?"......and your diction
    is beyond compare forcing me to make love
    to Webster every night to get
    the definiton of what you're say
    ing to me / then I sleep and pray
    that I "over"stand. But,
    what If I couldn't read how would
    you REALLY communicate with me

    would you send smoke signals after
    burning thoughts of me / or place
    whispers in a bottle and set it
    out to sea /would you send it via
    pigeon who would chirp me your
    mess-age/or would you mentally telepathically
    cogitatively send it to me on a personal
    "eff him" dial/

    if I could not read how would you
    REALLY communicate with me?

    Sign language
    morse code
    rain dances
    or
    Ham Operater Call
    I'd adjust
    to make
    certain
    you read
    me loud and clear
    Mass Communication
    Love-Ready Facilitation
    Even by conducting
    "Robert's Rules of Order" ~
    and if you had a learning
    disorder, I'd become dyslexic
    spelling words backwords
    just to ensure you'd 'get it'!
    if you were blind
    I'd learn and teach you
    braille
    ....there's a variety of
    ways I'd try to get-atcha'

    so if you could not read
    we would still communicate while
    your here ~ one thing my sweet ~
    ... just don't ever leave ...
