I can converse with you, apostrophé,
for you see we both plot to hide the key
ingredients in a relationship,
when you are used, certain letters are skipped.

There are times I feel I am in the dark,
like, when I get used to seeing your mark,
making a word not really a word, see,
just like I'm not who I'm supposed to be.

An inverted slant is all that you are,
you make a word obscene, give it a scar,
gullible patrons of the written word,
don't stop to think that you might be absurd.

Ah, but we are kinsman, that is a fact,
look at me, you only see the abstract.
I'm saying we are both fraudulent sluts,
subtracting our total, we are just mutts.

Rogues that we are, we're not unlike the rest,
giving the world something for them to guess.
You and your inverted slant, gives you style,
like you, I hide parts of me with a smile.

    first of all this is a really nice poem, but u are the one who don't understand I am not the one shooting rockets. who is pushing who into the sea, have u ever seen the world map? It is they who are pushing the Palestinians into the sea they don't even have a proper place to live. I write about the bloodshed i see, the whole world is saying they were wrong to have entered Gaza. I mean no harm to anyone. It is the dying infants and crying mothers I wrote about.
