because the poem called me

because the poem called me
I had to stop and play
I left the lawsuit briefly
so that I could do this stray

the poem bounced the line
so that I could catch the word
but unfortunately distracted
the word could not be heard

then the line itself rose up
and floated soft away
I had to reach for other lines
that were in disarray

and so this poem is not vivid
nor does it bounce in glee
but simply holds the petals
of the rose I used to see
