Words for the taking
I had this vain hope
that these words might take you
through the blue sky comfort of your easy days
into a Bunnings of the mind
where new thoughts are for the taking
from the shelves of this existence.
Where we could sort of share
the expansion of our living space
and build a kind of new dimension
in mutual creativity.
But you just waited patiently
like some gifted Goddess
gilded in the solvency
of a total self-sufficiency.
And when my words finally reached
the checkout of your existence
you paused a moment and with a sigh
accepted the proffered card
before wrapping everything up neatly
while asking if I wanted credit.
