English Lessons


I’m drifting away as you speak

Tuning out your confession of love

Burrying it in my own thoughts

Because

Although your words are honey sweet

Delivered with poise and grace

Like recited sonnets, like Shakespeare’s scripts

I think

You must have failed English class

You must have never paid attention,

Never passed an assignment

Because

Any English teacher would have taught

Show, not tell
