The Coy Could Feign by Steve Lehman (los laymen)

Could I gush out my love to you in words,

    rain verbal cloudbursts of affection,

    paint the sky with volcanoes of praise-

Would I woo you worldwide with factories of propaganda

   rocket rainbows of flattery into your eyes

    blast your brain with witty pearls-

Should I pound your eardrums with polyrhythmic thunder

    dance dervish dreams from my tongue

              like arrows through your heart…

Still,

 I would never win more from you

         than the fleeting joy of a child in pain;

    nor should I cloud your saintly soul,

              with all the pleas the coy could feign.
