This is an interesting edge I’m trembling on.
There are corners to the universe here
that I never realized existed.
You (and I mean “You” in the multiple sense)
and I (and by “I” I mean me)
have an erratic way of articulating
the sentiments in our souls.
In the absence of true speech
we dance around the subjects
of our heavy hearts,
choosing instead to engross ourselves
in lighthearted deviations from the norm.

  1. Afsaneh- thanks! It kept us amused for a good 15 minutes. 🙂

    Andrew- I’m not complaining about deviations from the norm. I think they’re what keeps us laughing. What would I do if my friends weren’t deviants? 😉

    Sarah- yup yup.

  2. No, no, no. I didn’t mean it like that. I didn’t really take this to mean that you didn’t like deviations from the norm, but that you were merely making an observation. I really agree with Sarah on this one. Very speakey-to-me-ish.
