poetry

outplayed riddles… 

you can give me 

those same banal lines 

that echo from 

every drawn out 

one night stand

i’ve ever known 

but don’t play 

a dangerous game

of half-assed actions 

and piteous intentions 

just because 

it’s all you’ve known 

because darling 

i’m not here 

to tally up 

outplayed riddles 

that i can’t make 

the difference in 

i’m here hoping 

we can give a difference 

to what we’ve known
