Listening...For Pleasure

by Stanley Boyson

share with me that special though

you know...the one you rely on by default
the one that betrays your concentration
renders us invisible, imbibes the imagination

tell me about your day, even if it was bad
i wont interrupt to tell of the one i had
my ear is your vehicle of expression
use it if you will, to fend off suppression

even the mundane i want to intrude
absorbing each word in a cerebral interlude
my lobes await your very countenance
i offer my attention as a form of recompense

no thought of yours is ever trivial
each word is as sacred as a ritual
your desire, is to speak and be heard
my desire, is to devour every word

nouns add form, verbs become vibrant colors
listening now becomes the language of lovers
each unspoken word is like a buried treasure
casual? listening for pleasure
