ready quickness

red faced a little when i have to make myself
easily resist the temperment i was taught to love
around the same time i need you is when
diving into deeper waters is foolish
your eyes can no longer bring me to my knees
quizzing myself on all the things that have changed
under my arm your fingers slowly uncurl
inner rainstorms have brought my mind a soundtrack
can every day become this blazing fun or just
keep up with the level of unpredictability
needed to these arenas of not clock-watching
even the trees make weird shaped roots
sometimes no matter how perfect they are
some of the clothes aren’t worn like before
environment wishes you good will
so enjoy your time to kill
