Please Do Tell

Watch those lines.

Are they moving?

I don’t want you

Please do tell me

Hey, don’t interrupt me
while I’m talking!

I don’t care if some
orange elephant’s
coming after you,

I told you to look

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.
