undressing words

November 17, 2010

you want to know
the meaning of
my words.

you want them:

raw.
naked.

you want them.

i’ve never dressed poetry.
it is. simple.
beautiful.
truth.

it is raw.

deconstruct me.

my nouns are real
people, places and things.
my adjectives describe
the world through my eyes.

i am an imperfect preterite in the present tense.

i am words.
spoken.
whispered.
silenced.

go ahead.
undress my naked words.
underneath my skin
you will find a heart
that beats in
iambic pentameters.

conjugate the word “be.”

i am.

i am the words
as raw and real
as your anticipation to read
the next poem i will write.
