Tough guy poetry from my published book of poems.
Don’t blindside me with your issues
amid our playful moments
and think I’ll not notice what you’ve done.
Don’t dismember our situation
unless you know I am ready
to face the abyss
of your every concern.
Don’t casually project
hoping I’ll step into
that dangerous arena
GIVE ME ROOM
I need room to prepare for your issues.
I want time to get up my guard.
Attack with disappointments,
I’ll withdraw at the blink of an eye.
I get confused when I’m not ready,
not so much about your subject,
but about your reason why.
You must give me warning
and wait as I prepare
for the cuts and slices of your concern.
