Listen to Blue World's Gift

Spiced between
your teeth
like a doorknob
and mother's knee.
Vacation hats
and photographs.
A legend lives on
inside your history,
uptown girl.
Lessons ruled out,
new words taught
better learn how 
to walk that walk
and shuffle your cards.
I see your ace
and destroy
the cage 
that sits inside
of your room.
All hope is lost.
Cope with me.
Bend a friend
and your ear 
will hear 
my every word.
Were you listening?
