You waltz along,
123 123 123,
sticking your tongue out at me.

Do you want me to join you?
Are you being a tease?
My issue with this is no small thing.

You can waltz along, sure,
that’s no skin off my teeth.
Just give me the essence
of the message you’re sending

so I don’t spend the rest
of my spring and summer days
waiting for something
that may or may not be true.


Author: Aidan Badinger I am a poet. I write poems. Titles and subjects and subsequent readership are all part of one fragmented figment of our universe, and it's nice that we take it so seriously. Hopefully the craft remains and grows stronger for our children.
