    Writing a Sonnet

    I just need fourteen lines, wait, make that thirteen lines after this
    Ok, let us start: I saw you yesterday in a yellow summer dress,
    the color of high dosage diazepam (clearly troubled, this girl)
    In the stunned heat of a day in July, a woman is leaning from
    the fifth-floor window vodka at elbow, she watches the evening
    How easy is this, just eight more to go
    There are delving days when the ink-blue sea whispers to me
    in a sexy voice, 'Come over here boy, and give me a kiss.'
    another troubled person, let us find some hope
    The morning sun peeks into this hotel room above bourbon street
    our silent breaths take shape, hers, and mine
    See! A little romance, now let us finish this thing
    All I can say to you is that life and existence is nothing more than
    all the small print that you never read.

    I like it.

    Loved this play with the sonnet form, Tony!

    It's good to play, sometimes. I like meta in poetry and fiction.

    who am I but a stitch in time
    what if I were to bare my soul
    would you see me origami
