Terse Passionata
by Larry Jaffe

I will write
in the style
of Mayakovsky
terse staccato
passages of love

I will follow
the rhythm
of my fingers
only worshiping
my tribe

I will be irreverent
at every possible
and take chances
on failure

The words
will bounce
from border
to border

And then escape
