If I could write the words
in a circle
instead of this;
thin meandering line.
And all my words
were written for you,
and would start
to pull you forward
and always
draw you back
and round
to where they all began.
But instead,
I always write like this;
where all these words
are written for you,
and where they’ll end,
“how could you know?” on all
these wandering paths.

    I keep wanting to read “thin wandering line” at line 4, with the line running on from line 3, partly because I don’t like “this: this” unless you make a statement of it ;) Otherwise, I really like the poem :)
