Saturday Scribbles: If You

Longing

If You

if you wonder what you bring;
is your consideration worthy
of my fragmented, fumbling dreams, and
why I'm captive in your smile
if you ask what I find;
is your world noble in my cautious
and groping curiosity, and
how can I want to hold your hand
if you question what you give me;
if pressed to answer, I could pull a rabbit
from an oblivion of millions, and
say that, never having requested as much,
you give a damn
