On Being Able To Mention

If
you
only spoke
to me
in small
fragments,
I would
climb
mountains
in between
your
syllables,
and force
Zeus to
swallow
his pride
like
the Man
you
think he
is.

If you
only came
centimeters
from my
face, I
would
give those
26.2’ers
a run
for their
money
ten times
over, and
make the
world
stand still
for the
moments
you took
in air.

Of course,
if you
gave me
even a
dime of your
time,
I’d begin
to leave
liking you
to loving
you, like
newborns
do
before
they even
learn
how
to etch
words.
