If you want to buy my attention
please bring something other than
your precious coins and wants.
If you’re going to stand alongside me,
just bring your hand.
If you plan to please and perform
make sure you take me
to that place where we first kissed.
It’s still not too late,
you can dress up and have that look.
Under a blanket of your choice
you can bring a game
and make it come to life.
The very thing that brought you here
is a secret that no one else has ever noticed
or cared to look at straight in the face.
Here you are, alone for the first time
what you will get in return from this
unselfish performance of yours?
Not only are you on the stage
there is a level of instant high respect
even if it’s just my opinion.
Accept the terms and you’ll have
all the time and attention you deserve.
Listen to the words that fill your belly
intentionally give yourself over blindly,
heap all of your love at once
up on this plate of love.
Bring your special gift to the line,
bind your wrist
tightly knitted in mine
because long before we ever jump
we’re going to agree upon the spot
exactly where we’re going to fall and land.
In the safest way of course
we’ll need to jump right now of course.
Then on the other side,
with our terms all agreed upon
both sides can take their time
producing the next great generation
an epic tragic play depicting
an all new ending to what we’ve started.
