the meeter

needs, wants:
what are desires,
but extra dips
in life's fonts?

it doesn't matter
much to me
for the rest of this ride,
I'm running with scissors,
and I won't keep my arms inside:

like Springsteen,
when they say
Sit Down!
I'm Standing Up;

meeting needs,
desires and wants:
and splashing the water
right out of those fonts.
