Parental Advisory

Hear Ye. Hear Ye. Here we propose to posit prose poetry
forming a form of continuous connectivity,
to communicate considerable contemplative reflectivity.

Simply put, we pose this where
prose poetry is what you’ll hear
when wondering where the time went
while reading such rhyme wonderments
as oft are wrought, and revealed thusly,
each whit of wit written Hieronymously.

over both fat and thin. Be in
your skins within your spaces
when you are kissing pretty faces.

Yes, I said it once before,
but just because you read it, 
don't assume what lies in store.

I like to keep it simple, 
because that's how I know I got you.
I gotta keep it simple, cuz
