PLAIN

In other words
I might be unfold more easily.
I might not have been so, so,
Un pitched and open, so raw.
But I have not been
Folded as in Origami.
Though paper is involved,
This is simply me,
Unfolding through thought.
I wanted this time
To be flat or even, even.

I am mouth washed
In my ordinary life.
As wet as my whistle needs to be.
I kettle through time
Gaining pressure and straining.
I often have to turn
My heat down for myself.
This, to avoid boiling over.

I carbon copy myself
With my own bare hands.
I often spill myself too.
I am like a random glitch.
An un-uniform functionary,
A sort of unofficial error.

True, I breathe biologically,
And I can be convincing.
Though I usually speak my words
As verbose confetti,
And I tend to concrete my meaning as if in tongues.
I was schooled and engineered
To deliver a dog-rail performance.
To me thus, this all comes easily.

However,
It is on ink sprayed paper,
I weave best, that is where
My mantle is achieved.
I always appear laminar,
As myself and as to myself.
My gift is my challenge.
My challenge to you
Is this gift.
Now read my lips,
As petals or perhaps lettering.
I will offer you others
And my hope is that
Your joy lies in their opening.
Be it by the touch of a whisper
Or as a flash from a Nova.
So in some way it combines
As an enrichment.

From dimension one my offer is plain.
