Has no warmth
I’m shivering

Go find her there

Feelings flicker on and off
Change places like a carousel

You know …

You love …
or else you do not love …

You hate …
or else you do not hate …

You fear …
or else you do not fear …

Admire …
worship …
or else despise …

… him
or … her
or … them
or … people

You think or else you do not think of
these feelings flickering on and off
changing places like a carousel

Words
just words
simply words?

A treasure trove of magic words
“Oh pen”, says me and hey presto!

To live magic

Not as if
That fixes anything

Or needs to

Which is good
