    these random poems with no motive clear.
    Trenchant title intact, easy come, easy go;
    no room (or cognition) for emotion, I fear.

    Does your melancholy ever wear a smile?
    When caught in the cracks, do you lean?
    The ways I see you weather a daily trial,
    boasting broadest smile I have ever seen.

    I sit with spinners, counting words aloud,
    speaking of coffee as their elixir of life.
    They design their vests, wear them proud,
    They cut with a spoon, stir with a knife.
