Unravelling and weaving, sometimes simultaneously

Waxing Gibbous

It was rhetorical
when I asked

What am I going
to do with you?

But of course
you were snappy
with your reply

I don’t know

What are you going
to do with me?

I said

I am going
to steal a convertible
and take the top down

I am going
to kidnap you in it

and drive like mad
for the closest coast

When I reach the ocean

I am going
to show you
all the things
I have learned
and then
I will let you
teach me
something else

You laughed

Why don’t you skip
the grand theft auto

and by the way
you don’t need to kidnap me
I’ll go willingly

let’s just take
a slow ride
in my piece of shyte car
down to a beach

not the closest
but a private one

and play show and tell
as the mood strikes

and the moon?
