    You walked around
    as if you ruled the
    world looking at me

    teasing me

    telling me

    to suckle on your breast
    then give you life

    I chased you around as if
    we were two children
    trying to catch fall
    leaves that were held for
    a moment on the brisk
    flow of natures expiration

    running around in my mind
    where writer's blocks were dodged
    was indicative of my desire
    to see you in another form
    so I caught you and
    gave you life after 9 minutes
    of labor I presented you

    /new/

    in a metamorphed mixture
    of styles and metaphors

    the sound you made when
    your totality was scribed
    on a pad was beyond compare
    yet, I listened to a voice
    my soul had to translate

    after the rustling of paper,
    the typing of keyboards, the
    scribbling of images, the grinding
    of erasers, and the flipping of
    dictionary pages your voice was
    loud and clear

    you told me your name

    POETRY.
