A Poem: This and That

It happens every first of then,

A glance, a stare, a smile . . .

A joke made out of this and that,

When it's that and this all while.


Then becomes a there at last;

A joke there is no more -

A touch, a kiss, a warm embrace,

and that's what this is for!

Good word play, short and simple.

Swirling, supercilious& substantive simultaneously, and so so satisfying, such as the capture of the magic itself.
