an experimental step of my own

I'm not entirely pleased with this, so I'm posting this variously for comments.

momentary gestures

you speak of wisdom, giving
marred reflections, at times, i think
of my own voice
as answers to my questions, not

perhaps quite mocking me
but making me mock myself

and at times i wonder
how real you can be. every other one i've touched
i've changed, and you seem
somehow to have resisted

(but i have no idea
of how i might change others
or make them afraid, i am merely
a man of words)

and thus our friendship. near 30 years'

and thus i pet your pit bull
and we banter and share our
(quite legal) pot: and certain casual words
echo, and somehow remain.

:there are, yes
unsaid words
that are quite real
