speech acts

he talks
of this
she talks
of that
they do this
but not that
it becomes
all abstract
nebulous
like a kiss
a wish
for an act
a word
he sees amiss
as if she’s
a fact
waiting
to enact
something more
than less
a chance
he missed
she talked
of this
he talked
of that
they did this
and not that
(July 2012)
