First Person Demonstrative (I don't know who wrote this)

First Person Demonstrative

I'd rather
Eat half a brick than say
I love you though I do

I'd rather
Crawl in a hole than call you
Darling, though you are

I'd rather
Wrench-off an arm than hug you
Though it's what I long to do

I'd rather
gather a posy of poison ivy than ask
If you love me

So if my hair stands on its end
It's because I never brush it

And if my heart isn't in my mouth
It's because it knows its place

And if I don't whisper in your ear
It's because gristle gripes my guts

And if you miss the message
Better get new glasses
And read this twice.
