Verse: Sunday, 5:20 P.M.

So quickly
did this notion
overtake me
that I let it go
too soon

before I knew
what I wanted
to say

before I knew
what it meant

but at least
let me say this

for all the things
I have said
the notions
the words that
I have thieved
and distorted
in imprecise
contorted verse
some vague truth

all I ever wanted
was to be remembered
for the things
I didn't say

all I wanted
was to seduce you
with silence
