i’ve taken a sabbatical
from matters ungrammatical
and within reach
the parts of speech
no longer seem so radical

from adjectival servitude
i live in utter certitude
this is because
each pause and clause
comes within a certain attitude

the rhythm of each syllable
provides a ground so tillable
i dig it all
both big and small
each word so good
it’s billable
