Abstract Purposes

this word means what it says
that I am writing well that we
understand each other better
than we think that words are
good for something more or
less valuable than useful for
abstract purposes like talking

that came out in a rush because
I'd thought about it with my other
brain attention elsewhere dressed
up indulging in a special dinner
celebrating eighteen happy years
playing music now a century old
kissing murmuring sweet wit

I let it stand for what I want
to say to write is arranging
words in space in time will
tell the story now unfolding
lucky confident imagining a
reader when night is young
I am loving this book again
