Where you see a vine, I see the flight path of a pair of leaves.
Where you hear pizzicato violins, I hear all the angels of time whispering stop.
Where you pause for breath, I swallow audibly.
Where you exercise one or more rights, I give love a bad name: to wit, You.
Where you invest in gold, I save water & fingernails.
Where you climb a hill, I let my feet take me home.
Where you descend, I stare into my shoes as if they were mirrors.
Where you read Terms of Service, I read Dream at Your Own Risk.
Where you see the letter A, I see a window pretending to be a door.
