A go to response for whatever.
Defensive disease that never says please…
Using dry wit as a lever.
Confounding retort at the ready.
Won’t draw blanks & cannot say thanks…
Never deferent & stoically steady.
With aloof & unflappable cool.
A slap in the face with no innate grace…
Self-appointed exception to rule.
A soul like a bottle of lightning.
Clearly you care if your brain’d just dare…
To stop giving your heart such a hiding.
Destiny’s fast when purpose beats past.
Life isn’t just lived…it’s made.
