Jason Vitelli: Confluence

Suit

Patience never bid me well
Shoves me to a corner
No response; must call on her
And make this time illuminate
I’ll make it shine for free
Will she shine for me?

And maybe I’ll discover once in a while
A little piece of heaven latent in a smile
And maybe I could wrench free any moment I wish
Box it up; put it in the best suit I can find

While pacing to and fro
Decide to take a shower
Spindly cold does not bother
Razor clears my scuffed malaise
She’ll make me into Remus
Could she be my Venus?

And maybe this will all last more than a day
And a little piece of treasure will surface in our wake
And maybe I could wrench free any moment I wish
Box it up; put it in the best suit I can find

Maybe this will all last more than a day
And a little piece of treasure will surface in our wake
And maybe I’ll discover once in a while
A little piece of heaven latent in a smile
And maybe I could wrench free any moment I wish
Box it up; put it in the best suit I can find
