But I'm the exact font.
I am outside your window.
Throw down your hair.
I mean the hair you pulled from the drain
when you were cleaning your tub.
I want everything you have ever tried to wash away.
The first time you were bullied in junior high.
The last time you blushed from a compliment.
Every fever that hasn't yet broken. It's true,
I have never made a love potion that hasn't blown up,
but your mouth is the sexiest beaker.
Bend me over your periodic table
then try to tell me we don't have chemistry.”
You were drinking sangria and I was throwing oranges at you,
but it didn't matter.
I said my arms are very long and your head's on fire.
I said kiss me here and here and here
and you did.”
I liberated anonymity from my fingers the moment
it asked and still, the cold slept quietly
beneath my palms.”
I like words. I like fat buttery words, such as ooze, turpitude, glutinous, toady. I like solemn, angular, creaky words, such as straitlaced, cantankerous, pecunious, valedictory. I like spurious, black-is-white words, such as mortician, liquidate, tonsorial, demi-monde. I like suave "V" words, such as Svengali, svelte, bravura, verve. I like crunchy, brittle, crackly words, such as splinter, grapple, jostle, crusty. I like sullen, crabbed, scowling words, such as skulk, glower, scabby, churl. I like Oh-Heavens, my-gracious, land's-sake words, such as tricksy, tucker, genteel, horrid. I like elegant, flowery words, such as estivate, peregrinate, elysium, halcyon. I like wormy, squirmy, mealy words, such as crawl, blubber, squeal, drip. I like sniggly, chuckling words, such as cowlick, gurgle, bubble and burp.
I like the word screenwriter better than copywriter, so I decided to quit my job in a New York advertising agency and try my luck in Hollywood, but before taking the plunge I went to Europe for a year of study, contemplation and horsing around.
I have just returned and I still like words.
May I have a few with you?
